Create laundry room in basement
My extension basement area is a lower ground floor rather than subterranean (there are windows in the area in question). There is existing living accommodation plus a WC which was constructed less than 10 years ago with all warrants etc in place.
I now wish to convert a room adjacent to the WC into a laundry room, to include a washing machine, vented dryer, and sink. The existing WC is connected to the mains drainage via a macerator since the drainage is at ground floor level rather than lower g.f.(All within the approved plans & warrant).
I will be replacing the macerator with one suitable for pumping washing machine waste as well as the WC.
Do I need a building warrant for any of the work (upgrade of macerator; instal of water feed to the sink & washing machine; addition of sink & washing machine waste into the macerator – all into a room with no prior plumbing, but adjacent to and connecting with the existing WC) ?
Many thanks in advance.
