TPA has assisted Satnam Planning Services in obtaining planning permission for up to 550 homes at Little Maltby Farm, Low Lane, Ingleby Barwick. The development is adjacent to a consented scheme which TPA also assisted Satnam with for a free school and 350 residential dwellings.

TPA prepared a Transport Assessment to support the planning application, which was submitted in December 2013.  Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council refused the planning application in February 2014. An appeal was lodged against the decision and a Public Inquiry held in July 2014, during which Craig Rawlinson gave highways evidence.

The Inspector recommended that the Appeal should be allowed, although the Appeal was refused by the Secretary of State in January 2015.  That decision was later subject of an application to the High Court and was subsequently quashed by order of the Court in July 2015.

In May 2016, the appeal was re-determined by the Secretary of State, whereby the Appeal was allowed and planning permission granted.
