Education | Co Kildare School replacement update

To ask the Minister for Education the current position in regard to the replacement of a school (details supplied); and if she will make a statement on the matter.

(Details Supplied) St Farnan’s Primary School, Prosperous, Co Kildare

The project to which the Deputy refers has been devolved for delivery to Kildare & Wicklow Education and Training Board (KWETB).
The Design Team is currently preparing the Stage 2a report (developed design) for submission and the Department understands from KWETB that this report is nearing completion. It is a matter for KWETB, as the client for the project, to ensure that this is completed as quickly as possible.
Once the Stage 2a submission is approved by my Department, the next step for the Design Team will be to obtain the statutory planning approvals. When these are in place, the project can proceed to tender and construction.

While at this early stage it is not possible to provide a timeline for completion of the project, KWETB will be engaging directly with the school authority to keep it informed of progress.
