The school referred to by the Deputy applied under the Summer Works Scheme 2007 for funding for car parking facilities. The application was unsuccessful however, as due to the volume of applications received; it was not possible to allocate funding to all proposed projects.

The school management subsequently submitted the project for consideration under my Departments Emergency Works Scheme. The application was unsuccessful and the management have lodged an appeal against this decision. The appeal will be processed and a decision conveyed to the school as soon as possible.

The Building Unit of my Department has no record of an application for funding for car parking facilities from this school under the Emergency Works Grant Scheme. However, I have arranged for an application form to be issued to the school for completion and return.
