3. Increased use of surrounding land

'Increased use of surrounding land' is not a negative consequence of upward urban growth.


Explanation:

The growth of urban areas will increase pollution as the population grows. Population growth and restriction of free air flow due to urban growth will lead to a "hot island". As the population grows with the growth of the city, waste management will also be a problem.
