Help! Walk in shower with toilet vs separate shower, bath and toilet

Help please! I have a huge scale renovation happening and need to cut costs. The biggest cost is cutting new drains into our existing concrete slab, and separating the toilet (see proposed plan). It all feels a bit tight in that region for the size of the house. In the New Zealand market, traditionally separate toilet, bath and shower seems to be the way to go, however we don't have enough space and budget to make that work. What would you compromise if you had to? Is a bath necessary these days, and same with a separate toilet if there is another in the house. It is important to note that we use our own ensuite so this is a main but guest bathroom as our child is an adult. I would look to sell in the next 10 years.
