In danger of being delisted

BADAN Warisan Malaysia is alarmed by the numerous illegal works being carried out on heritage-listed buildings, including those listed as Category One within George Town’s core heritage zone and the surrounding buffer zone.

According to local heritage activists who are volunteers, there have been about 50 cases of illegal works within the Unesco (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation) site. Some have been completed and others are still under renovation, and using the wrong materials too.
