To convert a garage

Converting an integral garage to a living room, bedroom, etc will not normally require planning permission provided the external finishes used are similar in appearance to those used on the existing dwelling and provided the garage is not being enlarged externally. If you live in a modern house it is worth checking with your Planning Department whether the house is subject to a planning condition that prevents this alteration (such conditions are common on modern houses, and could have been imposed  when the house was originally granted planning permission).
