I’m sure that you do need such an approval, otherwise your bedroom / playroom / study will be considered as illegal. This can cause problems in future in case you decide to sell it. However, it’s not impossible. If you don’t want to build concrete walls, you can hang industrial curtains (e.g. https://www.curtain-and-divider.com/). They are stronger than normal curtains and are not too expensive.

So I’ve been searching site that can help me on how to fix a wall . And I’ve found one. You can follow to the link yourself to get more good tutorials.

Yes, even if the garage is integral or is detached, as the use of the garage has changed, the works may be involve the renovation of thermal elements and the energy status of the garage will change.
