Department of Education and Skills
Schools Site Acquisitions
212. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills if the required clarifications have been received from the vendor of the site for schools (details supplied); if satisfactory, if a design team will be appointed for both projects; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [9486/19]
As previously confirmed to the Deputy, there is ongoing close engagement with Kildare County Council and discussions with the landowner of the proposed site. The Department is working towards acquiring the site as soon as possible so that the project can be progressed into design stages. Due to commercial sensitivities relating to site acquisitions in general, I am not in a position to provide further details at this time.
