Conservatories Question

Building a small conservatory?

I need some extra space in my kitchen for a small dining table I was just wondering if it was possible to build a conservatory as small as 1.7m by 3m and would this require planning permission? Also what price would you be expecting to pay for this with dwarf walls and one of these being a full brick wall (3m)?
Is it worth doing one for this small amount of space?

Thank you for any help

You can't use a conservatory as a kitchen extension, it's against the regs. You need a proper extension. That'll need building regs but maybe not planning. With a conservatory, you don't need regs, but the planning situation is the same. It all depends on the location, I would need more information to advise you further.

you can't use conservatory as a a kitchen ext plus the cost will be about £7,500 & for the size , the internal measurement will be 1.4 x2.85. you will be better off with an extension you will not need drawings just the measurements & notify council & pay fpr inspections & recieve certificate at the end because if you sell in future you need that or you can't sell the house
