Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects
376. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills her plans for a new school building (details supplied); if a site been identified; the timeframe for the delivery on the project; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44210/20]
As the Deputy is aware, the building project for the school in question is included in my Department's capital programme.
The acquisition of the permanent site for Malahide Portmarnock ETNS is at a very advanced stage of conveyancing. Once all contractual matters have been finalised the site will be assessed for Architectural Planning.
While a site acquisition process is underway, given the commercial sensitivities associated with land acquisitions generally I am not in a position to comment further at this time.
