THE Penang Island City Council and George Town World Heritage Incorporated (GTWHI) have refuted claims that the state government is not following guidelines under the George Town World Heritage Site’s Special Area Plan (SAP) on the approval of hotel development projects.

In a press statement, Penang Gerakan acting Youth chief Jason Loo questioned why approval was given for a building at 66, Church Street, and two units at 7 and 9, King Street, to be converted into hotels.
