  • Making a bed sit in a three bed house

    Hello
    I have a three/two bath bed house. I'm about to do a Reno on it and want to create a bedsit out of the existing kitchen (it has a bathroom attached and easily locked off from rest if House, and its own entrance) and move the kitchen to another area of house.
    Would I be able to leave cooking facilities in the bedsit as it used to be a kitchen?
    I will still apply for consent to move the larger kitchen.
    Thanks for any help provided!

    You will want to apply for a consent not to move the kitchen, but to install a second one, which will open a whole can of worms about second ratings units, fire proofing etc.

      From what I understand, a place with a kitchen is considered a dwelling, so if you want to have two kitchens, you might need to apply for a second dwelling. Best to talk to a counsel planner.
