Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
68. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills further to Parliamentary Question No. 112 of 1 June 2016, the status of the application to construct a boundary wall between a school and a residential area (details supplied) given that all issues have now been resolved and all requested information has been provided. [33221/16]
During the Summer, my Department gave approval in principle for the works in question to be carried out at the school. The nature of the project, however, has many inherent risks and it is important that all of these risks are identified and addressed during the design process. The Department will need to be satisfied that this is the case before final approval can issue for the project. The Department is examining recent information supplied by the school and it will be in direct contact with it again shortly with its views as to how the project should proceed.
