Conservatory planning permission is something you are very likely to be thinking about it if you are planning on extending your home with a new glass structure, such as an orangery or conservatory.

Conservatories now come in so many different styles, shapes and sizes – from the more traditional to some highly contemporary designs – that they can a make beautiful addition to pretty much any type of home, be that a renovated period property or a new build.
