The development of the former Grand Hotel site in Alderney has been approved by the island's States.

It required a housing exemption ordnance, which was passed on Wednesday despite opposition from States members Bill Walden and John Beaman.

They argued unsuccessfully that building 36 houses when 120 properties were for sale did not make sense.

The plans for the development will still to be submitted and approved by the States before work begins.

Moves to complete the compulsory purchase of land near Alderney airport were deferred to give the States more time to consider points raised by the current owner.

It is due to be considered again in November.
