MP opposes proposals for pub at ancient hill fort site

Have your say

AN MP has urged councillors to reject plans to build a pub-cum-hotel on the site of an Iron Age fort, saying that nothing should be built until after a full archaeological survey is carried out.

Brothers Mick and Barry Thandi have asked for planning permission for a pub at Castle Hill, a Scheduled Ancient Monument at Almondbury, Huddersfield.

Two previous schemes submitted by them have been turned down by Kirklees Council.
