Written answers (Question to Education)

The major building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department’s 6 year Construction Programme.

The project will be delivered via the Design & Build Programme, which uses a professional external Project Manager to progress the project through the relevant stages of architectural planning and construction.

Planning Permission was lodged with Cork County Council in August 2018. Additional information was requested by the Local Authority in October 2018. The Project Manager is currently in the process of completing the necessary information and it is envisaged that the additional information will be submitted to Cork County Council in the coming weeks.
