Dear Planning Inspectorate,
Please can I be provided with an electronic copy of the latest Inspector Training Manual (or the latest version of any subsequent superseding guidance for PINS). Having reviewed recent FOI requests, there are none available with an up to date (2019) version (please point me in the right direction if one does exist).
A consolidated version with all latest changes would be ideal.
Thanks for your email.
I note your comments and am forwarding your email to our FOI team to deal with. Just wondered if you have an email address we can respond to? If you could "reply to all" and let us know, that would be great.

Unfortunately the FOI request doesn't allow me to include my email address (as it keeps redacting it). is there an alternative way to send the document? I've tried to call you to give my email address, but it seems you are away form the office.

Thank you for your e-mail, requesting information from the Planning Inspectorate, which has been passed to me for reply.
Please find attached the first part of the Inspector Training Manual. I am sending the Manual in three parts due to its size. The second and third parts will be attached to following e-mails.
The Manual is subject to regular updates. The Manual does not constitute Government policy or guidance and does not seek to interpret Government policy. In the event that there appears to be a discrepancy between the Manual and national policy / guidance, any national policy and guidance will be conclusive.
As this document is not written for an external audience, many of the hyperlinks point to our internal systems at the Planning Inspectorate (including links from one chapter to another), and therefore will not be accessible to those outside.
The Inspector Training Manual has not yet been fully updated in response to the revised National Planning Policy Framework.
Further to my previous e-mail, please find attached the second part of the Inspector Training Manual. The third part will be attached to a final e-mail.
Further to my previous e-mail, please find attached the third and final part of the Inspector Training Manual.
