I recently bought this vase but I can't find much about the pottery or the potter in the usual sources.

Pot stands about 15cm tall.

An internet search tells me that a Mrs K.M. Hunter (presumably the "KH" from the base of the pot?) applied for planning permission for a sign at 11 Crossgate, Otley in 1976.

Can anyone expand on this information, please?

All the best

I could only find this reference about the building, which is now s pub. They might know more about the owner when it was a pottery.

It must have been in business in 1975, when it was listed in "Traditional English Country Crafts and How to Enjoy Them Today" (seen via Google books snippet only).
