Does my new bathroom need Planning Permission?
You do not require planning permission to install a new bathroom unless it is part of an extension.
If your property is listed, you should consult with your local planning authority or seek the advice from our architectural or planning consultants.
Refitting a bathroom with new units and fittings does not generally require building regulations approval. Drainage or electrical works that form part of the refit may require approval under the building regulations.
If a new bathroom is to be provided, building regulations approval is likely to be required to ensure that the room will have adequate ventilation and drainage, and meet requirements in respect of structural stability, electrical and fire safety.
