I am pleased to inform the Deputy that funding was approved under the Additional Accommodation Scheme to enable the school in question to build a four classroom SEN base.

The project has been devolved for delivery to Louth & Meath ETB. The next step will be for the ETB to procure a consultant. This consultant will lead the project through the various stages of architectural planning and onwards through the statutory planning process and construction.
