Winter garden and construction law

A conservatory does not require a building permit if its area does not exceed 35m2. For each 500m2 of land you can build maximum two such objects. To build a winter garden, you must submit an application in the city hall or county office. The application should contain such information as the applicant’s data, the date of commencement of work and the scope of works and information on the form of ownership. The permit is issued on the basis of tacit consent, i.e. lack of information from the office within 30 days constitutes consent to carry out the works.
