Briefings on local decision making from CLG to PINS

The request was partially successful.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I would be grateful if you could make available any briefings (whether by email, memo, minutes of meeting or letter) from central government to PINS on the issue of local decision making/localism. I would also be grateful if you could provide details of any internal briefings (whether email, memo, powerpoint presentation or letter) to inspectors on the same subject.

I look forward to your response

Yours faithfully,

Neal Jillings

[Subject only] FW: Freedom of Information request - Briefings on local decision making from CLG to PINS

show quoted sections

Dear Martin,

Thanks for your response.

Perhaps I neglected to explain my request clearly enough. I am interested in briefings from CLG to PINS regarding how to take the emerging concept of localism into account in decisions at inquiries and examinations. In addition, I am interested in internal briefings to Inspectors, whether in the form of a memo, PINS Note, letter, email or powerpoint presentation on the same issue. It is not something that is on the link that you have directed me to. I would envisage that the cost of obtaining this information will be limited in the extreme. My letter does not refer to obtaining all the information you have on localism and local decision making, which your response refers to. I wonder if you could reconsider my request in the context of my further claification please.

Yours sincerely,

Neal Jillings
