model answer:

Dear Neighbours,

I am writing to inform you of a number of problems I have had recently concerning the communal parking space. As you are aware, every resident in this block is allocated one space in the parking area. Since the beginning of the month, however, I have on several occasions been unable to find a parking space when I return home from work.

This must mean that either some residents are using the area for more than one car or that non- residents are using the parking area. Also, I have noticed that the parking area is being used more and more frequently as an area to dump unwanted furniture which is untidy and a potential health risk.

I am not blaming any individual for these problems but feel that as a group of residents we should act together to avoid any repetition of these problems in the future perhaps by putting up much clearer signs.

I would like to suggest that we meet to discuss these and other issues you may have on Monday March 18th at 8.00 pm. I am happy to host this meeting in my flat (Flat 1). Please call to let me know if you would be interested in attending this meeting: 2775 483.

Best regards,

David Lee.
