In a question recently tabled by the DUP’s – East Londonderry MLA Maurice Bradley to ask the minister of Education (i) for an update on the planned capital works at Coleraine College; and (ii) whether there is a new build at the college’s current site or a site nearby.
The minister responded “There are currently no planned capital works at Coleraine College.
The Education Authority (EA) currently holds the following requests for capital minor works at the School: General DDA accessibility improvements;Refurbishment of toilets; Site security improvements; Traffic management improvements. These will continue to be considered for inclusion in a programme of minor works as soon as the priorities and funding permit.
There are no plans for a new school build for Coleraine College at this time .Given the substantial size of the current Major Capital Investment Programme, the Department is not is not planning for a further capital announcement, at present.
Should a further call for Major Capital projects be considered at some point in the future, it will be for the school’s Managing Authority, in this case the Education Authority, to determine if the school is considered a strategic priority for submission at that time.”
