The building project referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department’s Design and Build Programme. This delivery programme uses a professional external Project Management team to progress the project through the stages of architectural planning, tendering and construction.

An application for Planning Permission in respect of the works was submitted to the relevant Local Authority in July 2019. A request for further information was received in August 2019.

My Department's Design and Build Project Management team are actively working on this Request for Further Information (RFI) and a response will be issued as soon as possible.

As with all school projects, the exact timeframe for delivery of the project will be dependent on the grant of planning permission.
