Toilet door direct into kitchen

Postby Yorkie » Wed Aug 08, 2007 11:35 am

I have a downstairs toilet which is currently accessed via my utility room. The utility joins onto the kitchen and is seperated from it by a stud / plasterboard wall. I want to take this wall out and have a larger kitchen. Can anyone advise if this is legal, or what I would need to do to comply with building regs.
Many thanks.

All I can tell you is that I am having a downstairs toilet fitted "inside the kitchen" with a partition wall and door directly into the kitchen. This was approved by our council's building regs with no problem.
