Written answers (Question to Education)

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

This project is at an advanced stage of architectural planning - Stage 2(b) which includes the application for statutory approvals and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured and the Design Team has recently submitted a Brief Change Request to my Department for review.

When the Brief Change Request has been reviewed the Design Team will proceed to incorporate the approved changes into the Stage 2(b) tender documentation.

Upon completion, receipt and review of the Stage 2(b) submission the Department will revert to the school with regard to the further progression of the project.
