Written answers (Question to Education)

A building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is included in my Department’s Construction Programme which is being delivered under the National Development Plan.

This building project will provide a 16-classroom school on the site. A new Design Team had to be appointed as the original brief was for 8 classrooms, but was increased due to greater enrolments.

My Department recently gave approval to the School and Design Team to progress to Stage 2B of Architectural Planning – Detailed Design Stage which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Certificate, Disability Access Certificate and the preparation of Tender Documents.
