The Inn hotel in Jersey could be converted into accommodation for The Royal Yacht hotel staff.

If plans are approved, 70 hospitality workers for The Yacht could live in the purpose-built housing.

The three-star Inn Hotel on Queen's Road in St Helier opened in 2009.

It has 36 registered rooms - space which The Yacht could now use to help house some of the 240 staff they provide accommodation for.

No major building works have been planned for the site, only a "change of use" and installing two bike shelters and a vehicle charging point.
