It would depend on the Council’s Local Plan policies. It would be worth seeking the Council’s Pre-application advice prior to the submission of a formal Planning application.

Hi- Of most concern is the ground quality to ensure no PCB's are present. Contaminated ground needs remediation, this could be costly. Research in the locality for a history of the site. The library in the vicinity of the sub/s should have details.
In order to preserve Neo-classical industrial architecture much love & perservance is needed.
Also a worthy cause retain the greenbelt.
