ISLANDERS are being asked to share their views on the future of the former Seaside Café site at Grève de Lecq.

The site was bought by the government and is being gifted to the National Trust for Jersey following a landmark decision in the States Assembly earlier this year, with Chief Minister Lyndon Farnham previously speaking of the need to secure it “for a use that will be of benefit to the public”.

The Trust has now launched a survey as part of the first phase of a public consultation process regarding the future of the area.

In a statement, the Trust said: “The site now belongs to the people of Jersey, a really important milestone which recognises that Jersey’s coastline, beaches and public amenities are spaces that should be protected for the enjoyment of everyone forever.

“The survey is the first stage of what the Trust hopes will be an informative and collaborative process over the coming months. It aims to clarify what people want to see at the site by asking high-level questions with clear and quantifiable outcomes. This feedback will help inform key elements of the Trust’s plans and set the tone for later stages of the consultation.”

Chief executive of the National Trust for Jersey, Alan Le Maistre, added: “We are immensely excited by this opportunity. We already have the funding in place for some redevelopment of the site, but ultimately, the full scale and potential of our plans will be determined by the additional support that we receive.”

He continued: “Together we have the chance to make this tired and neglected site into a beautiful, environmentally conscious space, with wonderful public amenities that will enhance Grève de Lecq now and into the future.”
