Staff move out of prime East India Company building

Government officials have begun moving out of three historic properties in Jamestown that have been identified as a prime site for a hotel.

St Helena Government’s human resources department has now transferred to The Castle from number 3 Main Street, part of a row of Georgian buildings that date from the days when the East India Company ran the island.

Staff from the infrastructure and utilities directorate have moved from The Castle to Carnarvon Court at Seales Corner to make way for them.

Plans are in hand for the audit service and Enterprise St Helena to move out of numbers 1 and 2 Main Street to make way for “appropriate private sector development”.

The three properties were identified as the best site for a hotel in Jamestown by consultants from Pam Golding Hospitality, who were brought to the island by Enterprise St Helena.

They also suggested that the island prison – due to close within three years – and part of The Castle could be converted as tourist acccommodation.
