Changes to internal layout

I want to change the internal layout of my kitchen & dining room,making it a kitchen diner. I will also be blocking off some windows & creating a new one & installing a downstairs WC. This will involve taking down some internal walls(not sure if they are load bearing) & creating some new internal walls. Should I instruct a surveyor to draw up plans & gain building reg approval before asking a builder for estimates
