Formed in 1986, the Penang Heritage Trust is a leader in the ongoing heritage movement in Penang.
We have spearheaded efforts to preserve the history and culture of Penang as well as to promote the
revitalization of George Town as a living heritage city. Our Heritage Alerts show that inappropriate
and sometimes unapproved renovation/demolition works are still rampant in the World Heritage Site.
The Penang Heritage Trust is very concerned about the lack of management and monitoring by the authorities.
We urge PHT volunteers and members of the public to take photographs and report any such heritage alerts
to the authorities with a c.c. to the Penang Heritage Trust.
