Department of Education and Skills
School Accommodation Provision
The Deputy will be aware that a project to provide permanent accommodation for the school in question is included on my Department's 6 year capital programme. The Deputy will also be aware that my Department has been working with the local authority to acquire a site for the development. The conveyancing process commenced in mid-September 2017. There is ongoing contact between my Department and the local authority and both parties are working constructively to progress the site transfer as soon as possible. The project will shortly be progressed to architectural planning, in tandem with completion of the conveyancing process.
