Changes to Conservatory

Planning permission was deemed necessary, and obtained, when I had a timber framed, stone dwarf walled conservatory built in 1994. This was because there is a private road running round the back of my terraced house and does not relate to the size of the conservatory, which is well within any permitted development parameters.

The frame was changed, by a very well known window-conservatory company, to uPVC in 2007. At this time, the design was also changed from gable-fronted to an Edwardian style conservatory. The conservatory retained the original stone dwarf walls. The company stated that they would handle any permissions required i.e. planning applications. I have recently found out that no planning applications were submitted for this work.

My question is: Where planning permission is required for a conservatory is further planning permissions required for a later change of design and material?

Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated. The company in question seem a little evasive in answering this.
