THERE'S no end in sight to the saga of what to do with Castle Hill.
Kirklees Council's Overview and Scrutiny Panel for Regeneration met in private to look at the issue.
Speaking after the meeting Clr John Smithson told the Examiner: "What I can tell you is that when I was a Cabinet member I met the Thandi brothers in April."
He said he asked them to come up with a scheme that complied with the range of limitations imposed by organisations like English Heritage.
Clr Smithson said he told the Thandis: "You come up with a scheme like that, with a business plan, and we will consider it.
"If it's viable then we will encourage you to get on with it.
"What they came up with in the end was not acceptable - hence the press release Clr Ken Sims sent out earlier this week.
"The council is now asking for a revised scheme.
"I think at this stage there's a dilemma between getting a scheme that's acceptable from a heritage point of view and one that will provide sufficient income to make it viable.
"That's a very big dilemma."
