Call your local building control for a definitive answer.Its quicker and easier than waiting for a mix of replies on here.You shouldnt consider doing this without involving building control anyway.To go ahead without,will give you problems if you decide to sell.You may well be told you cant do it.Toilets and kitchens do not tend to work well with each other.
