Plans for new homes on Jersey's West View Hotel site
The West View Hotel in St Mary, Jersey, could be knocked down to build five houses.
According to a report submitted with the planning application, the hotel is reaching an age where it needs substantial refurbishment.
The owners, who have run the business for more than 30 years, have decided to retire from the industry.
If plans are approved, one five-bedroom home and four four-bedroom homes would be built.
In the planning application, the developers said they would reduce the amount of building on the land, which forms the corner of a road junction.
The developers also said they were planning to work with St Mary's School to provide an art feature for the site.
