I'm currently planning a new kitchen and need to know where the gas pipe for the cooker can go to decide how units/appliances will fit around it. Obviously I'll get a Corgi plumber to carry out all the work.
Can a gas pipe legally be chased into a plasterboard wall and plastered over? Or does it have to be visible?
And, does the gas outlet for the cooker have to be directly behind the cooker (so the cooker will stick out too far?) or can it be in an adjacent cupboard with the hose running to it (as long as it reaches comfortably)?
Also, will an electrical socket currently directly behind the cooker need moving?
Thanks for any advice.
