THE sale of the former seaside café site at Grève de Lecq to the government has been completed.

The future of the site, including its car park, became uncertain after it was sold by the Lewis family in 2020 and later fenced off.

Earlier this year, States Members voted overwhelmingly to approve all four parts of a proposition from Chief Minister Lyndon Farnham to acquire the coastal site for £3.6 million and gift it to the National Trust for Jersey.

Deputy Farnham said: “I’m very pleased to note that the transaction has been completed swiftly, securing access to this iconic bay for the benefit of Islanders.

“I am grateful to all those who have been involved and hope that the site can be opened up in time for Easter.”

The National Trust previously said that restoring public access to the site was an “immediate priority”, adding they were aiming to do so before Easter “if feasible”.
