Bathroom window

Bathroom window

Do I need planning permission to block up a bathroom window and fit an extractor fan instead. Our bathroom window is in the middle of the bath in the path of the shower and is tiled all around however the window hinges are now beginning to rust. We are considering having a new bathroom fitted and wondered whether this would be an option. the house is 11yrs old. thanks

    Emma.

    No, you wouldn’t require planning permission to block off a window unless your house was listed or in a conservation area.

    You would require a building warrant for this.

    If no window was fitted it is likely you will require an extract fan as well as a trickle ventilator (this does the same job as the trickle vent on a window).

    You can get more information on window deletion by visiting our external opening page.

    Thanks for using Do I Need Permission
