Home Forums Ireland Derelict Rural Dwellings Re: Re: Derelict Rural Dwellings


From my research I have found that a fairly high percentage of derelicts are not reusable. This due mainly to planning reasons. Road issues and parking seem to be the biggest problem area. Some houses are on regional roas and wouldnt have a hope of getting PP and others are located down long winding dirt lanes.

In terms of condition, Im of the opinion that most derelicts could successfully be renovated. It really depends on the deep pockets and determination of the owner. However, it seems to me that the public have no appreciation of the value of derelict dwellings and that is why they remain largely un-used.

Pureeire, are you aware of any classification system that has been used to ‘classify’ (!!!) derelicts? ie derlelict….ruinous… Im finding it hard to come up with one myself.
