Written answers (Question to Education)

My Department has received correspondence from the school to which the Deputy refers in relation to a suggested decant proposal during construction. The school has been advised that any proposals in relation to decant would need to be discussed in the first instance with the school’s design team and would then require the submission of a fully costed Brief Change Request by the design team to the Department.

The Department has recently sought further clarification from the school in relation to its temporary accommodation and decant proposal and again re-iterated the steps that need to be followed in relation to same.

A response to this correspondence is currently awaited.
