Written answers (Question to Education)

Agreement in principle has been reached with a landowner for the acquisition of a site at Donaghcumper, Celbridge. There are technical considerations crucial to the delivery of the site and my Department continues to engage with the landowner and Kildare County Council on these issues in order to enable architectural planning to commence.

I can assure the Deputy that it is a priority for my Department to commence the architectural planning process for this site at the earliest possible stage. For the time being, given the commercially sensitive nature of site acquisitions in general, I am unable to elaborate further.
