Are there any minimum distances that must be met seperating the cooker gas hob from its hood?

I can't find anything myself, Section 422 seems to let you use your own judgement.

Does anyone use a rule of thumb on this? Normally I like to install them as far appart as possible (or if that looks ridiculous as far appart as aesthetics allow), however I have just looked at a job and the ducting for the hood is only about 3 foot above the hob, so the hood would be even closer than that.

I would be greatful for any advice.

Thank you

With a gas hob, the answer to this one is more likely to be found in some of the gas regulations.

Thats correct. I had to look this up with the GasSafe 'engineer' in his bible only this Monday.

You'll find this information in the Electricians Guide to the Building Regulations (Green Book)
