Guernsey's "stagnant" tourism industry could mean a five star hotel development on derelict land may never happen.
Planning permission was given for the luxury build at the Idlerocks in 2014, but no work to clear or build on the site has happened.
The hotel originally on the site burned down in 2003, and the Parish Constable says it's left "an eyesore".
But, developers who own the site say they want to see a more buoyant tourism sector before work goes ahead, as well as cheaper and more reliable travel links.
Vice-President of Guernsey’s Economic Development Committee even described the tourism sector as "stagnant".
The Development and Planning Authority has declined to comment.
