Written answers (Question to Education)

I wish to advise the Deputy that a remediation solution for Ardgillan Community College has been finalised. I can confirm that the process of finalising a programme plan to complete the design phase for this work is at an advanced stage.

The remediation solution will involve the existing steel frame, floors, roof and internal walls remaining in place (and being remediated where appropriate) and the external wall envelope being removed and replaced. The project will also include some changes to the internal layout which will assist the future operation of the school.

The School Authorities and the Patron body have been kept fully updated on the matter.
