Written answers (Question to Education)

I am pleased to inform the Deputy that the building project for the school to which he refers is being devolved for delivery to Cavan & Monaghan Educational Training Board (CMETB).

The first step in this process is the execution of a Service Level Agreement (SLA) between my Department and CMETB. This is currently being arranged.

Once the SLA is in place, the ETB will procure a Design Team for the project to design the buildings, obtain the necessary statutory planning permissions, and move the project onward to tender and construction in due course.
