The school building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build programme. 

Following the invalidation of the Planning application, Department officials met with Cork County Council on 31 May and it was agreed that an Environmental impact screening report would be completed prior to re-lodging planning permission.

The completion of this report will be completed later this month and a new planning application will be submitted. My Department has not received a request to meet with the schools Board's of Management but my officials will be in contact with the Board’s of Management when the application is ready to be submitted.
