A There are actually three definitions of "habitable room" in the building regulations, so the definition varies depending on which part of the regulations is being referred to. As the Planning Portal website advises, there is not a standard planning definition. Different authorities have different definitions, so you need to ascertain which one applies to any document referred to. In my experience, kitchens and bathrooms are not normally considered to be habitable rooms. John Harrison
