Written answers (Question to Education)

The building project referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department's Design and Build programme.. The competition to establish a project manager framework has been completed, and a project manager is now appointed.

The first step in the process will be the application for planning permission which is expected to be lodged in quarter 3 of 2019. Thereafter, the timeframe for delivery of the school will be dependent on the grant of planning permission. My Department is working to deliver the school's permanent accommodation at the earliest possible date.
