You've asked us to get the latest news on what's happening with the former pub site at Castle Hill as part of our new feature called Ask Examiner.

You tell us what you want to know, we put the best questions up for public vote and then we investigate the winner.

So we've gone to the Thandi Partnership brothers, who bought the previous Castle Hill pub, to find out the latest news about the site.

Applications went in to Kirklees Council in 2010 and 2012 but were refused due to the site resting on greenbelt.

Now this week Barry Thandi said: “We haven’t got any further.

“We can’t answer if there will be any developments but things change every day.”

This means uncertainty continues some 18 years after plans were first aired.

The Thandi brothers' original redevelopment plans ended when planning conditions were breached and a new pub had to be demolished.

The partially redeveloped Castle Hill pub, which had to be pulled down by owners the Thandi Partnership in 2005 after the build was found to have breached approved plans

It is now two years since further meetings between the Thandis and Kirklees Council officials took place.

New designs seen at the time were backed by Huddersfield MP Barry Sheerman but no formal planning application was ever submitted.

The site has been the subject of controversy since 1998, when the Thandi brothers first took over ownership of the former Castle Hill Pub, a Victorian structure that dated back to 1812.

Images for a new Castle Hill visitor centre, which were created by an architect in 2012 but never came to fruition

They caused uproar amongst residents with plans to extend the building, and although they received planning approval for refurbishment and partial demolition in 2002, they were forced to pull down their new structure in 2005 due to violating planning regulations.

Many have suggested the site should not be developed while others have called for facilities including a visitor centre.

We'll be releasing the next set of Ask Examiner questions for you to vote on tomorrow!
