Bought a big bath - will the water board be notified?

We are having our bathrooms refitted and the bath we bought (which is now in place) is 290 litres. Have just been reading through the paperwork from the house purchase and the drainage search has a list of circumstances where you would have to have metered supply - one being having a bath with a capacity of over 230 litres. We had no idea, only bought this particular bath because we wanted one with as plain a shape as possible and it's unlikely that we'll ever fill it anywhere near that much.
Will the water board be notified in the same way as they would if we'd bought a power shower or are we obliged to inform them? I doubt we'd be better off with a meter.
