The permanent building project for the school referred to by the Deputy is being delivered under my Department's Design and Build programme. 

This delivery programme uses a professional external Project Manager to progress the project through the relevant stages of architectural planning, tender and construction.

An application for Planning Permission was submitted to the relevant Local Authority in June 2021. 

A Request for Further Information (RFI) was received on 28th July 2021 and my Department’s Project Manager has been actively working through the items raised.  It is expected that a response to the RFI will issue shortly.

It is not possible to provide an indicative timeframe for the progression of the project to tender and construction stages until such time as the necessary statutory approvals have been secured.
