The phases set out in the document relating to GE are set out at para 3.2 of the Briefing Note.

Consideration has also been given within the Briefing Note of the relevant conditions relating to technical matters that are triggered either as pre-commencement or in accordance with the approved phasing plan. The relevant conditions are set out in para 4.1 of the Briefing Note.
