Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects Status
221. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the status of a new school building for a school (details supplied); if the site for the new school building has been secured; if not, the stage it is at; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [3002/20]
I am pleased to inform the Deputy that a site has been identified to accommodate a permanent school building for the school to which she refers.
The site acquisition process is complex as it is subject to completion of successful negotiation and conveyancing processes. Therefore, it is not possible to give a definitive timeframe for the completion of the acquisition. My officials will endeavour to bring the process to a conclusion as soon as possible.
Following the completion of the acquisition, the architectural planning process for the provision of a new permanent building for the school in question will commence.
