3. Sample letter: (174 words)


Dear the City Council of London,


I am Lisa. I come from Spain and are currently working in London as a senior accountant. Today I write this letter to you to complain about the ongoing construction project on Mainland Street, where I am living.


The project aims to build a new supermarket, replacing a former playground for children. However, works are normally conducted in the late afternoons until midnight, which creates a huge amount of noise. As a mother of two, I find this problem really disturbing. Late afternoon until midnight is the time when my family members gather and have dinner together, after a working day. Furthermore, after talking with my neighbors, I realized that they faced the same issue.


I personally suggest that the construction project should implement its works earlier in the mornings, from Monday to Friday. In addition, it can also use machines which produce a lower amount of noise.


Thank you for reading this letter and your support. I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Best regards,
