  • Hi siberian1, As long as the extension you are planning to make to the conservatory still falls within the allowed boundaries for size, then there should be no need for you to apply for planning permission. Conservatories fall under the banner of what is known as a permitted development. This means that there is no need for an application for these, so long as they meet the criteria laid out by the government. You can see this list of rules and regulations by clicking on the link for the Planning Portal on the government website which I have copied in below. Essentially, though, the key part you will want to make sure if you are making it bigger is that the conservatory does not exceed more than half the size of the original surrounding area of the house. Many thanks, Scott
