My Department is committed to providing a permanent accommodation solution for the school referred to by the Deputy. In that regard, a project to deliver a new school building on a green field site has been included my Department’s 6 year Construction Programme (2016-21).
In this regard, my Department is working closely with Fingal County Council in accordance with the Memorandum of Understanding in relation to the identification and acquisition of a suitable site to facilitate the school building project. A potential site option has been identified and engagement with the relevant landowner is currently underway. All parties are working to clarify some outstanding technical issues with a view to progressing with the proposed acquisition as expeditiously as possible.
My Department is in regular contact with the school in question and is currently making arrangements to meet with the school authority concerned
