Do you need to apply for building control for a conservatory or orangery?

Conservatories and orangeries are deemed to be non-habitable buildings as they are designed with a large percentage of glazing in both the roof and walls. Generally if you keep the addition separated from the house by external grade doors and the mode of heating can be separately controlled from the heating in the main house, building control would not be required.

Any addition larger than 30 square metres floor area requires building control.
