A PUBLIC meeting is to be held to explain the planning issues surrounding the historic pub on Castle Hill.
Clr John Smithson, deputy leader of Kirklees Council, will chair the gathering, which starts at Huddersfield Town Hall at 8pm on Thursday, August 12.
It will be a chance for the council to put its side of a dispute which has seen a halt called to rebuilding work on the pub.
Officials will also tell the public how they can make their views known to planning authorities.
Planners say the pub is being built too high and too large.
The meeting follows an announcement that a new planning application has been tabled which fits what has already been built.
Protesters have already pressured the council to refuse the application.
Council officers at the meeting will explain what happens now.
A notice stopping work on the site is to be the subject of a public inquiry on a date to be determined.
Chief planning officer Keith Faragher said: "I am hoping for a good attendance, so that all those who have taken a great interest in the site can make informed representations to the Planning Inspectorate."
The Thandi Partnership, which runs the Castle Hill Hotel, has been invited to the meeting to explain its proposals.
The meeting is being held five days before the deadline for comments to the Planning Inspectorate.
The new application, submitted by the Thandi Partnership, is in the hands of planning officers.
The Kirklees officials have up to 13 weeks to make a decision on the application and will take public views into account.
