Extending an existing garage/outbuilding under PD.

I have an existing garage/outbuilding (in greenbelt and a conservation area) that I wish to extend.

The extension would:

1. Be under 4m height (dual pitch roof),
2. 2.5m at the eaves,
3. Take up (far) less than 50% of the property's curtilage,
4. Be more than 2m away from any boundary,
5. At the rear of the property.

There is no Article 4 direction in place.

Can I do this under permitted development (class E)? It's only as if I'd built the original outbuilding to the larger size in the first place so I don't see why not.

Thanks :)
