Leethland was previously listed as Category C(S) (downgraded from Category B following damage from a fire, but this listing was removed on the 29th of October 2019 by Historic Environment Scotland.
The site is otherwise situated in the Green Belt, but is not the subject of any biodiversity or landscape designations. It does, however, contain many mature trees, which may limit the scope of development on the site.

The site is fringed on two sides by the Patrick Water and, although water level is well below the site itself, it is noted as susceptible to flooding by SEPA.
The site is also within an area where mining risk has been noted in the past.

Because the site is in the Green Belt, this limits the development prospects for the site. However, as a previously developed site, it does have development potential, and the extent of this can be discussed with Renfrewshire Council, or by contacting Paul Houghton, Director of Planning
