The conversion of redundant rural buildings to residential use.

I am surprised to find that only buildings of traditional construction will be allowed, namely stone and tiles, when even within the Green Belt the only proviso for re-use, is that they are of permanent and substantial construction, traditional construction is not referred to within the NPPF would not allowing the cladding of existing redundant buildings in natural stone be more aesthetically pleasing within out natural environment, that outright refusal.
