The Planning and Building Unit of my Department received correspondence on Tuesday 2nd July 2019from the school authorities in question relating to a proposed amalgamation. I wish to advise the Deputy that, at the time of reply, my Department has no record of receiving correspondence from the Patron relating to this matter.

Any correspondence received and issues raised regarding DEIS status will be considered and a response will be conveyed to the Patron directly.
