Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to inform the Deputy that acquiring additional land to provide a set down area opposite the school in question is a matter between the landowner and the Patron.

The issue of road safety measures in general outside the area of vested school sites such as road signage, traffic calming measures, car parking and pedestrian facilities are the responsibility in the first instance of the relevant local authority.
