A new building project for the school to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to Louth County Council (LCC). 

The project has now progressed through Stage 2(b) which includes applications for planning permission, Fire Safety Certification, Disability Access Certification, and the preparation of tender documents.   I am pleased to advise that the project has very recently been approved to go to tender in that respect. Once the tender process has been completed, and a contractor appointed, construction can be expected to begin on site.
