FITNESS fans can have their say on which three new sports the borough should develop by taking part in a consultation on the new sports strategy.
People can share their views on the draft Sport and Physical Activity Strategy (2010-2015) before the deadline on October 2.
The draft strategy has been produced by Brent's Community Sport and Physical Activity Network, (CSPAN) which represents sport providers from the public, private and voluntary sector in Brent.
Cllr Irwin Van Colle, Brent Council's lead member for environment, culture and planning, said: "Sport has more effect than people realise. Not only can it improve mental health and tackle obesity, but it can also improve community spirit and help reduce crime. I hope the people of Brent will exercise their democratic right and contribute to the new sports strategy."
