Carport to garage by fitting a door

Do I Need Permission - Ask An Expert Did I or do I require planning permission to convert a car port to a garage by fitting a garage door.
When we purchased the house the car port was enclosed on all sides and a frame for a door was in place so I had one fitted and this has been in place now for 9 1/2 years.
Would this be regarded as a permitted development.
Look forward to your reply.
