Development plans for the new homes on the Grouville parish site have been lodged with planners

Plans for 52 homes to be built on the site of Jersey Pottery have been submitted to planners.

The pottery's Gorey Village base currently includes the works, cafes and gift shops.

Director Jonathon Jones said the 64-year-old firm had no plans to develop currently but the new application would replace one that is due to expire.

A model of the new development plans has been made available to view at the planning department, in St Helier.

Previous plans for the site featured 57 homes.

Facilities staying open

The new plans have been designed by architect Huw Thomas to include gardens and solar panels.

Mr Jones said: "Jersey Pottery will be open for business, as normal, for a long time yet.

"A decision has not been made to proceed with the development but if and when work starts on the site, it is large enough to be done in phases, so we will keep the main building and facilities open for as long as we can."
