The permanent accommodation for the school referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design & Build Programme. 

A planning application for the project was lodged in January 2019.  Additional information sought by the Local Authority was provided and a notification of decision to grant planning permission was received on 24 May 2019.  It is intended that the project will proceed to tender shortly and a contractor will be appointed to commence work in quarter 4 of 2019.
