7 Most Important Endangered Sites

1. Governor’s Bungalow, Sepoy Lines 4. Udini House, Gelugor
2. Khaw Loh Hup & Khaw Boo Aun’s townhouse, Bukit Tambun 5. Shih Chung School – Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah
3. Chung Thye Phin Villa – Relau 6. Tanjung Tokong Malay Village
7. Runnymede, Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah

The Penang Heritage Trust has come up with a preliminary list.

The criteria are:

  • Based on cultural significance the site should be worthy of being gazetted in the State Conservation list.
  • The site must be truly endangered, suffering from years of neglect, endangered because of a change in circumstances, such as an unsympathetic proposal or it is now for sale and its heritage values are likely to be disregarded.
  • The research has to be approved by PHT council.
