In detail explain how the urban development in the Wyong Shire has had an impact on the natural environment How have the Wyong Shire Council and other major agencies attempted to manage the impact of this development Urban development has impacted on the natural environment in many various different ways To try and better these impacts in which the expansions have produced the council are undertaking many management strategies A good example of this is the constructed wetlands at monarch hills located on the central coast north of the Wyong River The urban development at Watanobi knoll has affected the runoff of water into the Porters creek wetland From this also the surrounding houses that are being developed are trapping swamp wallabies in and they are dying The swamp wallabies are also being wiped out by domestic animals such as cats and dogs Land developers have convinced the Wyong Shire council to start and experiment with constructed wetlands The two main purposes that constructed wetlands do are 1 to filter storm water runoff and slow up the flow of the water 2 It also acts as a scenic view for houses that face the wetlands pond Some advantages that these ponds have are that there is no smell all year round it adds potential investment into many of the houses in these streets at monarch hills Some bad points are that it costs lots of money to clean up the rubbish that these ponds attract gets really muddy and boggy In conclusion I fell that Wyong Shire council and its other agencies have put in a lot of thought and work into coming up with a suitable plan to slow down the water runoff flow but by doing this have had to come up with some other efficient plans to help save the lives of swamp wallabies due to urban development
