Cost for building regulations approval?

We are looking to get a small orangery/conservatory added to the back of our house. It will be quite small (not much more than 3m x 3m). We would ideally like to have the doors between the dining room and the conservatory removed, to give a more open plan feel, and because our french doors are quite wide and so we'd need to leave a fair bit of the space free to open them.
We know that to do this 'properly' we need building regs approval. Just wondered whether anyone has done similar and would be able to give me a rough idea as to cost? I suppose the question that comes first is whether a conservatory would even meet the requirements. There will be a fair amount of brick, making it more orangery than conservatory but I don't know how much difference that makes.

Our council has the costs listed online

Should give you some idea of costs.

Thank you @NachoNachoMan. But I'm not sure which costs would apply? We've never had any sort of work done like this before.

The top one, extension up to £10m2, £450 inc VAT. Last column, reguladisations, is for retrospective building control approvals.

Your extension sounds fab btw! We're planning an extension in the near future too but so hard to work out what I actually want!

Don't think I've ever typed that word out before 😂

Thank you! We've just moved house and whilst we are much happier here, we have sacrificed a little space downstairs. This should sort us out nicely
