Hi, a conservatory is classed as a temporary building which is why it falls under permitted development in England. However to fall under this there a regulations. If your property is detached then you can have a deprh of 4 m if semi or terrace then the max depth is 3 m. Also each wall and roof of the conservatory must be 60 percent glass. Before you under go this Google your local councils planning portal all is explained there. After all you do not want to have it ripped down once finished.

Many thanks
