The site is located within the Green Belt and as such National Planning Policy and Local Planning Policy state there is a presumption against development unless it fits into a number
of set criteria.
The site has a number of structures on it other than the main dwelling house. These structures vary from what could be considered permanent buildings to temporary buildings.
It is well established and in line with planning policy that redevelopment is acceptable where it doesn't adversely impact on the openness of the green belt. In this regard, proposals
usually provide a balance between the existing footprint and massing and the proposed. There may be a case to be made for development where it does not adversely impact on the openness of the Green Belt over and above the existing buildings. It is advised that you seek independent planning advice in this regard.
