An Bord Pleanala approves CPO for Oranmore lands to build new secondary school

An Bord Pleanala has approved a compulsory purchase order to acquire lands in Oranmore for a new secondary school.

The land is located at Coast Road, around 1km from Oranmore village.

The site at Coast Road is 8km east of Galway City, and 1km north-west from the centre of Oranmore.

It’s located beside the existing Costa Na Mara estate on the edge of the village – and is occupied by a vacant, small single storey building and shed.

The site would be used to build a new secondary school for Galway Educate Together, with capacity for one thousand students.

The school would occupy just a portion of the site, and the rest would later be used by Galway County Council for social housing.

The total cost of the land is around €7m.

An Bord Pleanala has now approved the CPO process without modification.
