I have an existing building which might have to convert a bathroom to UK part M domestic dwelling requirements.

The bathroom layout is as per the rough plan. It is 2600mm long and 1650 mm wide. There is a void behind the basin which would allow the room to be increased in length to 2800 x 1650. 6.62 sq m is 49 sq feet so it is reasonably large!

There is also the possibility that I can increase the width 100 mm to 1750 mm wide as I know for sure that there is wasted room behind the studwork behind the bath where the 100 mm soil pipe runs. There is at least 100 mm available (but it could be might be as much as 200 mm extra width available) That might open possibilities.

If I put in a 1650 long bath at the top end or made the bathroom a shower room (or wet room) is there some way wheel chair access can comply. Note this is a Building Control question on Part M of the UK building regulations. It needs to comply so is not a "will it work" question. It is a "can you make it comply" question. I am open to moving baths/basins around anywhere things will work.

Finally I suppose I could build a separate loo if that opened up possibilities.

I want to explore all of the possibilities in the space available
