PUTRAJAYA will not scrap the controversial development order on the Kuala Lumpur green lung of Taman Rimba Kiara but will instead propose that developers scale back the project, said Federal Territories Minister Khalid Samad.

Khalid said he has proposed to developers, Memang Perkas,a to consider taking up only half of their originally offered 4.9ha site, and proceed with a smaller-scale development originally meant to include nine high-end condominium towers and a block of 350 units of affordable housing for Bukit Kiara longhouse residents.
