Hi guys

I am looking to do conservatory. My width of house is 17ft

I am planning to use 15ft width for the conservatory and 3m depth which i believe is legal limit.

My question is, i was hoping to do brick pillars and side walls as maybe brick or plaster boards than windows and the front to have full length bi folding doors.

Is this legal? or do i need planning permission? i know its not like conservatory due to the walls on side but that's because the neighbors have similar and even if i put windows all i would see is there fence.

Please advice

The materials and appearance of the building don't affect whether or not it needs PP. If a conventional glass conservatory would eb Permitted Development, then so would a brick etc extension. You do need to make sure it IS PD though, as there are many factors involved. There's a good guide at
