Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects
As the Deputy is aware, following an extensive site identification, assessment and negotiation process, the Department reached an agreement in principle, subject to contract, for the acquisition of 8 acre site at Magee Barracks in Kildare Town to facilitate the relocation of the school to which the Deputy refers.
The acquisition process is at an advanced stage. Heads of Terms have been agreed with the Vendor and draft contracts have been exchanged.
Due to commercial sensitivities while conveyancing is ongoing and relating to site acquisitions generally, it is not possible to provide further information at this time.
