Hi, I appreciate your unusual situation but the fact remains that should the fan develop a fault and therefore be a fire risk you won't be able to get to it.
Yes you may be able to switch it off but it isn't really recommended that you box in the fan. Unless of course you are only using the fans ducting then that would be fine.
Kind regards, Nick Page.

Hi , if ducting pipe directly connected out side and also is above extractor fan? yes but we must remove the ceiling fan then connect the cooker hood extractor to ducting pipe.

If venting a cooker hood through a pitched roof, how will I prevent condensation building up and running back down the ducting to the fan?
Cooker hood will go through a pitched roof immediately above the hood - not enough room to run it horizontally through the wall.
