Previously Developed Land - Yes or No?

I have a parcel of land that is horseshoe in shape. Our house is on one leg, with our septic tank on the other. There are 2 properties in the gap, not owned by us, but at one stage all 3 properties were one land owner.
The bit of land with the septic tank is currently used a grazing for some Shetland ponies. Our Local Planning authority has called this bit of land "a field in open countryside"
As planning permission is needed for a septic tank under current policy, is this bit of land not classed as "previously developed land"?

I can not find any planning history for the septic tank as it is to old, but an updated soakaway has been evidenced in building regs.
