Dear Ms Reeves

Thank you for your e-mail, requesting information from the Planning Inspectorate. The information you are requesting is regarded as environmental information, as defined by regulation 2(1)(c) of the Environmental Information Regulations 2004 (EIR). Your request has accordingly been considered in the light of the provisions within the EIR.

The Inspector Training Manual (ITM) is held by the Planning Inspectorate in an electronic format and is made up of ‘living documents’ which are continually updated.

I note you request a hard copy of the ITM. EIR regulations are such that a public authority may charge a "reasonable fee" for making information available in the requester’s preferred format. In this case printing the full ITM would be charged at 10p per sheet with the ITM consisting of approximately 1200 pages.

Alternatively, I can provide the ITM as an electronic document. Due to the size of the document, the ITM would be provided as three separate electronic documents. Please let me know how you would like me to proceed.

Dear Ms Reeves

Thank you for your e-mail, confirming your request for an electronic copy of the complete Inspector Training Manual.

Due to the size of the document, I am sending the Manual over three e-mails.

The Inspector Training Manual is updated when necessary and does not constitute Government policy or guidance nor does it 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.

The Inspector Training Manual has not yet been fully updated in response to the revised National Planning Policy Framework.

As this document is not written for an external audience, many of the hyperlinks point to our internal systems at the Inspectorate (including links from one chapter to another), and therefore will not be accessible to those outside.
