The Role of the Project Monitoring Committee
The new children’s hospital Project Monitoring Committee is to develop a process for communication and dialogue and to manage and address residents’ concerns and issues during the construction phase of the project and work as a collaborative group to mitigate and resolve these issues.
The role of the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board is to plan, design and equip the new children’s hospital on the St. James’s Hospital campus. A planning application for the project was lodged to An Bord Pleanála in August 2015 and in April 2016 planning permission was granted. In August 2016 site clearance works got underway and early in 2017 full construction works are scheduled to commence and be completed in 2021.
