Band 8 IELTS letter sample

Dear Sir,

I am a resident of Creek Harbour Community and I recently read about your upcoming project Sky Views in a local newspaper. To be honest, it was a surprise to me.

I believe you are familiar with the structure / architecture / type of buildings in this community. They are mostly townhouses and a few short-story buildings. I am not comfortable with the idea of these skyscrapers peeping into my garden as they will invade our privacy.

In addition, I am a bit anxious about the congestion that it might cause. I do hope you will keep our concerns in mind while designing the entrance and exit to these buildings. I am assuming that you are planning to build supermarkets and other small shops, such as pharmacies and beauty salons, on the ground floor of these buildings. If you do so, the residents will not have to travel much, and this will lead to less road congestion.

I hope you will address these concerns.

Yours Faithfully,

Sanam Pourtehrani
