Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects
400. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills when a building project application by a school (details supplied) will proceed to the next stage; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [44485/20]
I wish to advise the Deputy that my Department is committed to providing a permanent accommodation solution for the school referred to.
In this regard, a suitable site in Castleblayney to accommodate the permanent school building has been identified. The acquisition of this site has progressed well in recent weeks and is at a very advanced stage of conveyancing.
Once this acquisition process is complete, the project for the provision of a new permanent building will be progressed into the architectural planning process without delay.
