Pre-war buildings can be costly for owners to upkeep

1 Pre-war buildings at Jalan Bijeh Timah with a new coat of paint. 2 A pre-war building being refurbished. 3 An abandoned pre-war building at Jalan Panglima. 4 Some of the pre-war buildings at Lorong Bijeh Timah are in a sorry state. 5 Some of the pre-war buildings at Ipoh Old Town are dilapidated.

THE state government should provide incentives to precolonial building owners in Ipoh City.

Perak Heritage Society president Mohd Taib Mohamed said this would reduce the burden on owners because the maintenance of such buildings is costly.
