St Anne's Special School on the Curragh is hoping to build a special education needs unit.

It has applied for planning permission to Kildare County Council for the new building at the front of the site to replace the accommodation within two existing sub-standard prefabricated units at the rear and side of the existing building.

The aim is to provide accommodation to allow for the future redevelopment of the school.

If approved, the unit will be located between the existing public roadside boundary and the existing school building.

The new accommodation would include a sensory room, communal room, equipment store, six classrooms, art room,
changing room, toilet facilities, one to one room, quiet room, and a waiting area, a new single storey canopy
between the new prefabricated building and the existing school, a temporary playground.

The works will also include the installation of a new temporary low level crash barrier adjacent to and outside of the
existing timber post rail fence adjacent to the proposed prefabricated building.

The works will also include the removal of the non native Leylandii trees.
