Plumbing Question

Installing a small hand basin in a toilet room.

My toilet is in a seperate room, due to my plans for my kitchen to be opened up and I support wall and door removed this will leave me with only one door between my kitchen and toilet, I think this means due to building regs I will need hand washing facilties in my toilet?

It's never had a sink in it before and it isn't close to any of the outside drains, would this be actually possible to do?

If you are putting a basin into the toilet area (if you have room) to can get a cold water feed from the toilet and the waste pipe can be run into the toilet soil stack.
Regarding the soil stack, depending on the setup it could be quite costly especially if its cast iron but is possible.

Hope this helps
