The Seaside Café site at Greve de Lecq will be bought by the government for £3.5M and gifted to the National Trust for Jersey.

The States Assembly approved the acquisition this week which included a condition that the charity uses the site for environmental, cultural and social benefit to the public.

Charles Alluto, the Chief Executive of the Trust, said restoring public access to the beach and reopening the car park was an immediate priority.

‘If feasible we would like to be able to achieve this before Easter.’

He added that the Trust was delighted and ‘very honoured’ to be gifted the site.

‘We are enormously grateful to have been given the opportunity to help regenerate this key coastal site for the benefit of our community,’ he said.

The Trust already has landholdings in the bay including Le Catel Fort and Greve de Lecq Barracks. This latest acquisition will further protect the natural beauty and rich heritage of the bay.

The charity will consult the public regarding future uses of the site having already commissioned  Socrates Architects to create a number of potential options.
