Pre-Publication Consultations

A pre-publication consultation seeks the views of those most directly affected by the proposed changes at a local level.

Under Article 14 of the Education and Libraries (Northern Ireland) Order 1986, the Education Authority has a statutory requirement, as the proposer of a Development Proposal for a controlled school, to consult with the Board of Governors, parents and teachers of a school.

This pre-publication consultation seeks the views of those most directly affected by the proposed changes at a local level. The Education Authority will also conduct further consultation with schools that may be affected by the proposal. Once responses have been received, the Education Authority will collate all responses received and, if a Development Proposal is required to be published, make a recommendation to its Education Committee.
