Under new regulations that came into effect from 1 October 2008 adding a conservatory to your home is considered to be permitted development, not needing an application for planning permission, subject to the following limits and conditions:
*The term "original house" means the house as it was first built or as it stood on 1 July 1948 (if it was built before that date). Although you may not have built an extension to the house, a previous owner may have done so.
**Designated land includes national parks and the Broads, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, conservation areas and World Heritage Sites.
You may also need to check if your house is a 'new build' as developers sometimes place restrictions on them. Although this may appear a little confusing, Conserv-a-tech conservatory designers are very knowledgeable on planning permission and will be able to answer any questions you may have and talk you through all the legalities above.
