Department of Education and Skills
Schools Building Projects
116. To ask the Minister for Education and Skills the up-to-date position on the delivery of new building for a school (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter. [23722/22]
The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to Cork Education and Training Board (CETB).
This project is currently at Stage 2a of the architectural planning process. The department expects the submission of the Stage 2a Report before the end of Q2 2022. Once the Stage report submission is approved by my Department, the next step for the Design Team will be to obtain the statutory planning approvals and move the project onward to tender and construction in due course.
While at this early stage it is not possible to provide a timeline for completion of the project, CETB will be engaging directly with the school authority to keep it informed of progress.
