I guess that if those supporting the application in had been as thorough as those who opposed it the "forgotten" condition would have been spotted before the application was made. In which case time and money would have been saved, and hopes and expectations wouldn't have been dashed. I hope the Six Wines Eight guys won't be put off the area by what's happened, though. Their presence was really appreciated.

It wasn't actually a matter of anyone objecting, but rather pointing out the legal covenants relating to the use of the building in the churchyard, as conveyed to the Council's predecessors in the 19th Century. The Council should have been aware of these before supporting the application.

These same covenants are also why the churchyard is still a green space, not blocks of flats!
