    I currently have ½ inch supply to my main outside tap. If I create a T, in the main feed, and run a 1 inch pipe to a new tap from the ½ inch feed, will this contribute to a greater flow rate at the new tap?

    No, but it will contribute only to the cost.

    Don't forget your double check valve to stop contamination of the mains water supply.
