The delivery of a new building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is being devolved to Laois and Offaly Education and Training Board (LOETB). To enable this, my Department is currently preparing a Service Level Agreement (SLA) for issue to the ETB.

The execution of this SLA will allow LOETB to procure a Design Team to take the project through the various stages of architectural planning and onwards through statutory planning requirements and construction.

The timeframe for the construction of the project will not be known at least until the relevant design stages have been completed and planning permission secured.
