Forum: Does recladding a conservatory with bricks and tiles need permission?

Q A homeowner had a conservatory built many years ago on the back of a detached house. He is now asking whether he can replace the glazed roof with tiles and the glazed sides with brick walls. Does this need planning permission, since it amounts to more than a repair and in essence would form a new structure? Should the General Permitted Development Order (GPDO) 2015 condition relating to "similar materials" be applied in deciding whether it is permitted development, as it would no longer be a conservatory but a conventional extension?
