Sample writing
Dear Mr. Smith, I read in the newspaper that you are the architect who is to design the new supermarket in our suburb. I am writing to ask you to consider the matter of easy use of the supermarket by people in wheelchairs. In particular, I would like you to consider the following things: 1. Width of aisles. Can you please make sure that the aisles are wide enough to allow wheelchairs to pass through. In some supermarkets the aisles are so narrow that a person in a wheelchair can not move along them easily.

2. Height of shelves. Can you please design shelves that can be reached by people in wheelchairs. In some supermarkets people in wheelchairs have to ask other shoppers to help them. This takes away their independence. 3. Lifts to other floors. Lifts should be in places that people in wheelchairs can get to easily. It is very difficult if lifts are right at the back of the shop and people have to go up and down the shelves before they get to it. 4. Car parks. I hope you will leave some car spaces close to the front of the shop for people in wheelchairs. It is very difficult if they have to park a long way away from the shop and wheel themselves over rough ground to the entrance.

Thank you for reading my letter. I hope you will consider my suggestions. Disabled people should have the same opportunities as ablebodied people to shop independently and they should be able to do so with dignity. I am sure many people will admire your supermarket if you design it with good access for disabled people. The supermarket owners will also be happy as more people will be able to shop there. Yours sincerely, Julia
