My point wasn't whether it's right or wrong to build the school. I don't have an opinion on that and I certainly don't have the time or the will to read 85 documents to try to come to one.

My point was that you have to account for all this stuff to get anything built. It takes time, it's expensive, it gets legally challenged at every step. People will oppose it because of pollution, noise, parking, wildlife, etc. At least a school though has a demonstrable public benefit in a way that a non-league football club, particularly a poorly-supported one without a women's team or a full youth setup, does not.

It's why Lovelace was always a fantasy, the latest plans are doomed to failure and some of us have been trying for years to make the case that we need to focus on existing sites instead.
