FINGAL COUNTY COUNCIL

SWORDS/BALBRIGGAN AREA COMMITTEE MEETING

(Services B – Strategic & General Matters)

THURSDAY 9th MAY 2019

ITEM NO. 62




Motion: Councillors B. Dennehy, R. O'Donoghue & B. Martin

“That the Chief Executive provide a report on the progress of the agreed

acquisition process for the proposed new school site required for St Joseph’s

Secondary School, Rush, while at the same time taking into account the strong

support from this committee that all measures possible are carried out to fast

track the process of the site delivery due to the current chronic pressure on

pupil numbers in the school, a situation which is due to rapidly escalate in the

near future.”

Report:

The Department of Education & Skills is engaging with the Council and is

cognisant of the school’s current accommodation constraints and both sets of

officials are working to progress matters as quickly as possible. It is difficult to

indicate a timeline for the completion of the acquisition of a site for the school in

question as it is dependent on the complexity of the conveyancing process. Once

the site has been acquired, the project can progress to architectural planning.

The Fingal County Council Compulsory Purchase (Park Road Upgrade) Order

2018 which provides for the land requirements for the proposed road upgrade

and would facilitate the school development has been confirmed by the Council.
