The building to which the Deputy refers had been scheduled to open in September 2018.  However, a slight delay has been occasioned due to a High Court challenge to planning permission for elements of the project.  This was unforeseen given that the building was well under construction before the legal challenge was taken.   The project is devolved for delivery to the local authority and my Department is working with that agency to ensure that the project is completed in the shortest timeframe possible.
