Converting existing Lean-to to Extension

Our house has existing 4x3.5m extension (pitched rood) plus a lean-to 1.7x3.5m (with polycarbonate roof) on the right side. I would like to knock-off the wall between lean-to and current extension and convert lean-to in main habitable area. We plan to use part of new extension as dinning and also install downstairs WC/Shorwer room.

The lean-to is adjoining to neighbours wall. There is no increase in the exiting building area but only conversion of the lean-to into habitable area. Do I need planning permission and building regs or just the latter?

Assuming the existing lean-to is a unheated space, then to make it habitable would only normally require BR’s.
