The Quarry



Forest Lodge Home Farm (Hythe Quarry) was Identified in the Hampshire Minerals and Waste Plan (2013) as ‘the best option for continuing a local supply of soft sand and sharp sand and gravel from this part of south Hampshire’.

Planning permission for mineral extraction and restoration was granted in March 2017 and quarrying commenced in August 2018. The quarry is split into three phases and is planned to be completed by 2028.
