The major building project for the school to which the Deputy refers is at an advanced stage of architectural planning – Stage 2b, which includes the applications for Planning Permission, Fire Cert, Disability Access Cert and the preparation of Tender Documents. A shortlist of prequalified contractors has been selected. All relevant statutory approvals have been obtained and the Design Team are currently working on the preparation of the tender documentation.

Once the Stage 2b Tender documentation is submitted by the design team, my Department will carry out its review and subject to no issues arising my Department will revert directly to the school regarding progression of the project to tender stage.
