The Major Building Project referred to by the Deputy is at an advanced stage of architectural planning. The school's Design Team are currently working on Stage 2b - Detailed Design, which involves obtaining planning permission, fire certificate and disability access certificate and the completion of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been secured.

Once the Stage 2b Tender documentation is submitted, the Department will carry out its review and subject to no issues arising the project will then progress to tender and construction stages.
