Ensure, where possible, that similar rooms are located above and below each other in a “stacked” layout, i.e. kitchens above and below kitchens, bedrooms above and below bedrooms.
Where possible layouts should be designed to avoid overlooking of neighbours' gardens/private spaces.
Where pipework cannot be accommodated internally, layouts should be designed so that bathrooms are located to the rear of the property in order to avoid new waste pipes and drains running down front elevations.
