Written answers (Question to Education)

The delivery of this school building project has been devolved by my Department to the local Education and Training Board (ETB). A Service Level Agreement between my Department and the ETB has been signed and sealed in that respect.

I can confirm that the design team for the project has now been appointed. This appointment is a key first step in the design and construction stages.

The design team will now design the buildings, obtain the necessary statutory planning permissions and move the project onward to construction in due course. As the project is at an early stage in the delivery process, it is not possible at this time to give a date for its completion.
