The permanent school building project for the school referred to by the Deputy has been assigned to my Department’s Design & Build delivery programme. This delivery programme uses a professional external Project Manager to progress the project through the relevant stages of architectural planning, tender and construction.

The design stage is nearing completion and the Project Manager for the Design & Build programme is working towards submission of the planning application in Quarter 2 2021. An on-line meeting to share the plans with the school representatives has been held.

Until such time as planning permission has been secured, it will not be possible to provide a timeline for progression of the project to tender and construction stages.
