Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
As the Deputy has been recently informed, it is premature at this juncture to give a timeline for the delivery of the new building to replace the school to which he refers. A new site is required for the replacement building and my Department has commenced the site identification process. When a suitable site is identified and agreed for purchase, architectural planning for the new building has to be undertaken and planning permission sought. Then the project has to be tendered for construction. I can again assure the Deputy that my Department is making every effort to progress the site identification.
