A sample of a letter of suggestion
Mr.Xue Chief architect Supermarket design 211 Kangwei Road Yuquan County Sun Lei 18 Hongyang Yuquan County

18 March,200_ Dear Mr Xue, I learn from the local news that

you are the architect who is to design the supermarket. I am writing to ask you to consider the right of the disabled for easy access. In particular, I would like you to consider the following things:

1. Access to the supermarket for people in wheelchairs and those who have difficulty walking. The lifts should be
wide enough for the wheelchairs to move around. The entrance should be suitable for wheelchairs on the ground floor. There should be special entry for people for the blind.

2. Toilets. There should be special toilets for the disabled. The bathrooms and toilets should have doorways wide enough for a wheelchair, doors that are easy to open and close, and hand-holds that the disabled can easily use.

person in a wheelchair to reach.

3. Telephones should be easy for a

Generally speaking, a supermarket is so big that it is difficult for one, especially one in a wheelchair to find what one needs. So telephones should be easy to reach for a person in a wheelchair so that he can call the staff for help.

4. Shelves. When people design
the shelves, the disabled should be

taken into consideration. Safety
should come first.

Thank you for reading my letter. I hope you will consider my suggestions. Disabled people should have the same opportunity as able-bodied people to enjoy the supermarket and they should be able to do so with dignity. It is very important to use various forms of

technology which can assist individuals with various types of disabilities to increase their mobility and independence. I am sure if you design it with good access for the disabled, the supermarket will attract more customers and people will speak highly of your design. Yours sincerely, Sunlei
