Mitchell has asked Department of Education to buy Charlesland School Site
I have been concerned for some time that there might be a shortage of school places in Greystones. Two weeks ago I asked Senior Council Officials to persuade the Department to now buy the 5 acre site in Charlesland which is zoned for a primary school. This was zoned 5 years ago and is a great site as most children will be able to walk to it along the excellent foot and cycle paths in the area. The site is close to Superquinn and is thought to be under the control of a bank.
The Department is supposed to listen to Council officials as it is very difficult for a Councillor to get them to discuss issues. So far I have not had a response.
