LG: To identify the

features of a

persuasive letter.

slide2

Dear Sir,

I am writing to express my disgust at the plans to build a new road through the important conservation area near Street in Somerset.

This conservation area is home to many hundreds of species of wildlife, including a number of rare birds and wild otters, a sight that is very rarely seen in our countryside. I understand that the road is important to the businesses in the local area, but surely this oasis of natural wonder is undeniably more important.

Many locals enjoy walking in the conservation area and school children visit it regularly to take part in outdoor learning. Would anybody really want to see this end? Everyone involved understands that the road would stop some traffic congestion in Street and that this is an important aim of the local council, however, without developing a whole new conservation area, we would lose endangered wildlife that only exists in a few places around the country. Surely anyone can see that this would be a tragedy.

I hope you can see that the loss of this vital habitat would be detrimental to the environment, local walkers, schoolchildren and a wide range of endangered wildlife.

Yours faithfullyy,
