Written answers (Question to Education)

The school building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under the Department’s Design & Build programme. 

The project is currently at advanced architectural planning which includes the preparation of the planning application.  The Design & Build Project Management Team lodged Planning permission on 2nd May 2019.

 The timeframe for delivery of the school will be dependent on the grant of planning permission. Once planning permission is secured a tender competition to appoint a building contractor will be required. The schools Boards of Management will be kept informed of progress by Department officials throughout.
