Kitchens and bathrooms (permissions)

​Planning permission

A planning application for installing a kitchen or bathroom within your existing property is generally not required unless:

  • your property is registered as a listed building or place (LBP) or a potential listed building or place (pLBP)
  • it creates a seperate dwelling unit or flat

If you do live in a listed building you may require permission for any alterations depending on the level of grading attached to the property.

Building permission

Work to refit a kitchen or bathroom with new units and fittings does not generally require building approval, although alterations to underground drainage will require bye-law approval.

If a bathroom or kitchen is to be provided in a room where there wasn't one before, building bye-laws approval is required to ensure that the room will have adequate:

  •  ventilation
  •  drainage
  •  structural stability
  •  electrical saftey
  •  fire safety
