I propose to take Questions Nos. 437 and 438 together.
The permanent accommodation for the school referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build Programme which uses a professional external Project Management team to progress the project through the stages of architectural planning, tendering and construction.
The project when complete will deliver a new 16 classroom school, including a multi-purpose hall, roof-top play area, 2 classrooms for children with special educational needs, associated staff car park, ball court and ancillary accommodation.
The project for the new school is currently under construction with Phase One due for completion in July 2022 and the completed school due for completion in Quarter 1 2023.
The land referred to by the Deputy opposite the school site is not in my Department's ownership and it is not possible to extend the agreement for use of the land in question.
The strip of land containing an attenuation tank referred to by the Deputy is in my Department's ownership and it is intended that this area will be made accessible by the school following completion of the project.
