Planning information: moving a bathroom upstairs
Do you require planning permission to change a bathroom from downstairs to upstairs and for the building of a conservatory?
You may require planning approval if the building is listed, if not you should be fine.
You will need to make a building regulation application, normally based on a cost of works basis as you will be making new drainage connections to a sewer. In some cases if you are installing a new soil vent pipe you may require planning permission for this element.
Building Control would also expect the new bathroom to have an extractor

You don't need planning permission to move the bathroom upstairs but you may need building control approval if you're connecting new drainage.
You may need planning permission for the conservatory depending on the size you want to build and the type of house you have. Take a look here http://www.planningportal.gov.uk/permission/commonprojects/conservatories/miniguide
