As the Deputy has been informed previously, agreement in principle has been reached with a landowner for the acquisition of a site at Donaghcumper, Celbridge and work is progressing and is ongoing in respect of technical matters on the acquisition.

It is a priority for my Department to commence the architectural planning process for this site at the earliest possible stage. For the time being, and as previously indicated - given the commercially sensitive nature of site acquisitions in general, I am unable to elaborate further.
