South West Taunton Urban Extension

TPA is proud to have supported a consortium of Summerfield Developments Ltd, Taylor Wimpey, Bovis Homes and Mactaggert & Mickel which secured a resolution to grant outline planning permission on Wednesday evening for an urban extension at South West Taunton. The scheme will include up to 2000 homes, employment, a primary school and other facilities.

Led by Craig Rawlinson and Michelle Berrington, TPA provided detailed transport evidence and a mitigation package including roundabout access points and a park and bus site, required to support the scheme.  TPA reached agreement on the various issues with the local highway authority and Highways England, and participated in extensive public consultation with various stakeholders.

TPA Proud to be Supporting the London Air Ambulance in 2016

Through TPA’s London office’s Charity of the Year Partnership with the London Air Ambulance (LAA) Rupert Lyons and Damian Ford were lucky enough to be invited by Lucy Brooks, Corporate Development Manager for LAA, to visit the helipad at The Royal London Hospital to meet some of the team and to find out more about the operational side of the LAA.

While experiencing slightly windy and damp conditions on the helipad, some 17 storeys above London, Michael Horton, one of the Fireman who man the helipad and support the team, imparted a wealth of knowledge about the equipment carried on-board the helicopter  as well as how the whole team work to provide a vital service to the capital.

With the service operating 24 hours a day, through the helicopter and Rapid Response Cars, an average ‘mission’ costs approximately £1,500 and brings advanced pre-hospital care quickly to the most severe incidents within the M25.

A huge thank you to both Michael and Lucy as well as the rest of the team we were fortunate to meet for allowing us to gain an insight into their work and the lifesaving service they provide.
