Para. 15.10

Amend Paragraph 15.10 as follows:

"In September 2010 a revised proposal by HS2 Ltd for the preferred route option around Brackley was published by the Department for Transport. The revised proposal moves the proposed route further to the west of the town and ensures that the proposed strategic urban extensions identified at Brackley North and Brackley East are no longer affected by the proposed route. The government confirmed in December 2010 that this is the preferred route that it will consult on in Spring 2011. A final route is not expected until passage of a proposed Hybrid Bill through Parliament in 2015. This revised alignment has been incorporated in the confirmed line of route for phase one of HS2 which was announced by the government in January 2012. Approval to construct phase one will be sought through a hybrid bill which is expected to be introduced to Parliament by the end of 2013. The government expects phase one to be operational by 2026."
