PPS 7 (Addendum): Residential Extensions and Alterations
Annex A: Residential Amenity: Noise and General Disturbance

A38 Residential areas can be sensitive to noise and general disturbance, particularly in the late evening when there is an expectation that surrounding background noise will remain low. An extension or alteration such as a balcony, roof-terrace or high level decking can all increase the level of noise and general disturbance experienced by residents of adjacent properties and will be subject to particular scrutiny.
