Roofless dwelling renovation
I have the opportunity to renovate an old ‘Salmon Bothy’, that was last inhabited as a shepherd’s accommodation. Until a few years ago it had a roof but that has now gone and what is left are the four external walls and chimney and remnants of an internal wall. There are no services. I would like to restore the building to provide occasional overnight accommodation for no more than a handful of weeks per year and for a few nights at a time. I would propose using oil lighting and or low voltage powered by photo voltaic panel or small turbine, a composting or chemical toilet (perhaps a bio-digester or reed bed treatment), and rainfall or adjacent spring water.
Would I need planning permission for this?
