This is a question that hasn't got a straightforward answer. If you wish to convert the garage into a home gym for example then no permission would be needed, but you’d have to retain the outside appearance i.e. keep the garage door. If however, you wanted to have the garage converted to become an extra bedroom then planning permission would be required. A free call to your local council planning office will give you answers to this question.
