    Roofing an existing structure, planning ?

    We have an old silage pit of concrete construction approx 20m x 9m with walls 2.6m. It hasn't been used for silage for more than 12 years, it's been used just as a storage area/hard standing . If I were to fix a roof over the pit to turn it in to a more useable building would this mean I would have to apply for planning?
    The structure is already there I'm just looking for more secure storage. It is within 20m of a road and it's at a satellite site of only 4acre.

    Surely you would just be replacing the old roof that was on it previously

    I was thinking I could be doing this but the roof has been off a looooong time. Does it matter? What's the worst that can happen .

    They'll have aerial photos going back a few years if they want to be shitty about it.
    Don't itch for something if you're not prepared to scratch for it.

    I'm a little concerned if I go and apply for planning as its only about 10m from a trunk road and about 30m from neighbouring houses so someone will object to a planning notification. The walls are already there and its adjoining another building so if anything I'd just be extending the roof over the old silage pit. If I go ahead and start extending the roof what could happen? Is ignorance bliss or is that a common misconception ?
