Kumeu College site acquisition

Marcus Cook made this Official Information request to Ministry of Education

Currently waiting for a response from Ministry of Education, they must respond promptly and normally no later than (details and exceptions).

From: Marcus Cook

Dear Ministry of Education,

Previous publicly available advice was that a detailed site evaluation on the required Secondary School for Northwest Auckland (commonly referred to as Kumeu College) was due to be completed by September 2022, at which point negotiations with affected landowners "may be initiated" along with site specific due diligence.

My questions are as follow:

Has a preferred site been identified? (Yes or no is sufficient - no identifying detail is required)
Have the aforementioned negotiations commenced? If not, when are they intended to?
If negotiations are complete, when will the outcome be available?
Has the due diligence on the preferred site been commenced? How long is this expected to take?

Yours faithfully,

Marcus Cook
