BRENT Council is calling on residents to help tackle climate change in the borough.
The local authority wants to find out people's concerns, what they think the borough should do to halt climate change and how they think Brent will be affected by future shifts in our planet's climate.
It is predicted that there could be an increase in Brent's average annual temperature of between 2.5ºC and 4.5ºC during the next 80 years.
And the annual average rain-fall could drop by up to 10 per cent.
Residents are being urged to fill in an online questionnaire so an action plan can be drawn up to provide guidance on how Brent should cope with a shifting climate and extreme weather events.
Councillor Irwin Van Colle, lead member for environment, planning and culture, said: "It is essential that we start planning for the effects of climate change in Brent.
"To do that properly, we need to hear from local people."
* The questionnaire can be accessed at www.brent.gov.uk/consultation and must be filled in by August 31.
