Council aquires schools site for Tyrrelstown

Thursday, January 14, 2010

The acquisition of a permanent school site for Tyrrelstown should be completed by Wednesday January 20th according to Fingal County Council officials. They were responding to a question I had put at this weeks local area meeting of the council.

“All legal requirements to complete the purchase of the school site at Tyrrelstown on behalf of the Department of Education and Science have been met by Fingal County Council.”

“Assuming that all requirements are met on the part of the vendor and that all documents and paperwork required of the vendor are in order, we are scheduled to complete the purchase of this land on Wednesday, January 20.”

The council must now transfer the site to the Department and fast track planning permission so that the schools can be built in time for next September. A community/sports centre will be built in conjunction with the school.

The welcome news marks the end of a long-running and frustrating battle between the landowner the council and the Department of Education.  Let’s hope this is the end of the Tyrrelstown Schools saga.  We’ve been told so many times before that the deal was nearing completion only for talks to collapse yet again.  At many stages over the last 18 months or so it felt like things were moving backward rather than forward.
