|574||Craigavon Senior High School||The Education Authority is the subject of a Judicial Review challenge on the pre-publication consultation process in respect of Development Proposal No 574. The Judicial Review was taken to the High Court on 6 June 2019 and the 28 August 2019 and a ruling is awaited.
In light of the ongoing case the Education Authority on 3 June 2019 decided to withdraw its publication of Development Proposal No 574, with the consequence that the public objection period was suspended. A further decision will be taken on how best to proceed, following the outcome of the judicial review challenge.
The Education Authority wishes to apologise for the inconvenience which this might cause but considers that it is the most appropriate course of action in light of the pending legal challenge. The Education Authority will keep stakeholders informed of any further developments on Development Proposal No 574.
