Plans for a new extension at Saint Eunan’s College have progressed further this week, with a planning application now lodged to Donegal County Council.
The multi-million development seeks to add a new two-story extension with 37 general classrooms, 20 specialist teaching rooms, 2 special needs classrooms within a special educational needs suite.
The building will also contain a multi-purpose hall, staff room, administration rooms, toilets, stores and a general purpose room with kitchen and store.
The application is currently at pre-validation stage with Donegal County Council.
The existing Protected Structures, including the 1906 Castle, 1933 Linear Extension to the Castle and Chapel, are to be retained and extensively refurbished for general teaching and administrative purposes.
All existing temporary school buildings, the old sports hall and a teaching block built in 1979 are to be removed.
On campus, permission is being sought to add new drop-off zones including 88 additional standard car parking spaces and 4 universally accessible parking spaces. Six new ball courts are to be added to the campus.
The St Eunan’s Board of Management opened a public consultation process on the development in April-May.
