Schools Building Projects Status
As the Deputy is aware, a building project for the school to which he refers is included in my Department's 6 Year Construction Programme (2016-2021).
The purchase of a suitable site for the school's permanent accommodation has recently been completed. Arrangements are now being made to finalise the project brief for the school concerned with the aim of progressing the project into architectural planning.
The school building project to which the Deputy refers is currently at advanced architectural planning stage. The application for planning permission for this new school was lodged in May 2017. When planning is secured, the project will progress to tender. The project will thereafter proceed to construction which is expected to be in Quarter 1 of 2018.
