The major building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is at an advanced stage of architectural planning, Stage 2b – Detailed Design, which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Cert and Disability Access Cert and the preparation of tender documents. All statutory approvals have been obtained.

The Design Team recently submitted the stage 2(b) report. Following examination of the stage 2(b) report, it became apparent that the submission was incomplete. A revised stage 2(b) submission has recently been requested from the school and its Design Team. Upon receipt and review of the revised 2(b) submission, my Department will revert to the school with regard to the further progression of the project at that time.
