Department of Public Expenditure and Reform
Schools Site Acquisitions
170. To ask the Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform the status of a proposed beneficial land swap involving a school (details supplied) and his Department; when a decision will be made on the proposal; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [50231/19]
The Commissioner of Public Works have been approached by Summerhill College with regard to a land swap on lands adjacent to a site acquired by the Commissioners for the construction of a new Garda Divisional Headquarters at Caltragh, Sligo Town.
There are a number of issues for the Office of Public Works (OPW) to examine including complex title, rights of ways and planning before any decision can be reached.
I am advised by the Commissioners of Public Works that, on completion of this examination, they will then be able to finalise a decision on the matter.
