Minister for Education and Science (Dr. Woods): The application from County Wicklow VEC for an extension and ancillary works at Arklow community college was accepted by my Department. A design team was appointed in April 2000 and architectural planning of the project is progressing. Officials of my Department's building unit met a representative of Wicklow VEC and its consultant architect on 28 June 2001 to discuss the college's stage 2 submission, outline sketch scheme. Its design team was requested to resubmit a revised submission incorporating the changes requested.
