when writing a letter to persuade i tend to have a problem opening i normaly open with a retorical question or an emotive pharse but is this too much
No it isn't too much. The opening line of a persuasive letter needs to be eye catching! Make sure you grab the reader's attention straight away by clearly stating your opinion on the subject; this could be done by a rhetorical question or using emotive phrases. But make sure it is positive and interesting so the reader wants to read on. HOPE THAT HELPS :D
Say something like
Dear Mr Jones
I am writing to tell you my view on your new park (for example).
I think that a new park would result in a high rise in anti-social behaviour.
I think that you should save the r. question to the end of your statement as this makes it stronger. If you add it now, you may run out of things to say!! ;)
I think you should also save the emotive language for the part after the opposing side coz then you can diss it!!!!!!!!!
Hope this helps and good luck :)
Hope that helped!
