  • S171B Town & Country Planning Act 1990): ‘ (1)Where there has been a breach of planning control consisting in the carrying out without planning permission of building, engineering, mining or other operations in, on, over or under land, no enforcement action may be taken after the end of the period of four years beginning with the date on which the operations were substantially completed.’ therefore once it's been up four years planning is no longer an issue - it becomes lawful development whether it had consent or not or whether it needed it or not, If you are selling a property and your solicitor doesn't know that change your solicitor. In my experience most conservatories don't need consent anyway and come within the GPDO.
