Kitchen cabinet height next to hob

This is my first post here so apologies if it is the wrong forum.

I am planning a new kitchen and I know that the minimum recommended height of a cabinet directly above a hob (e.g. the extractor fan and cabinet) is 750 mm if a gas hob is fitted.

Does anyone know what the recommended minimum height, above the level of the hob, should be for the wall cabinets either side of the hob? The cabinets I have in mind would leave a gap of 420 mm from the hob level to the bottom of the decor strip running around the bottom of the cabinet (480 mm to the cabinet itself). Is this enough?

Thanks in advance for any advice posted.

I think you will find that if the cabinet above the hob is the correct height, then lining up the the tops of the cabinet the next wall cabinet will be at a height that is acceptable.
