Dewan Sri Pinang, Jalan Tun Syed Sheh Barakbah, George Town, 10200 George Town, Pulau Pinang

From 7 to 31 May 2019, George Town Conservation and Development Corporation (GTCDC)* is gathering feedback from the public on the Dewan Sri Pinang Conservation Management Plan.

Dewan Sri Pinang is a civic centre on the north seafront of the George Town World Heritage Site (GTWHS) in Pulau Pinang, Malaysia. Located next to the Town Hall, the building was completed in 1972. As part of major upgrading work on the seafronts within the GTWHS, the Conservation Management Plan proposes several options for developing and upgrading the Dewan Sri Pinang building. GTCDC is keen to hear the public’s views on these options.

To have your say on which option should be implemented and what function(s) the building should fulfil, please fill in the survey linked below. Feedback collected will inform the planning of the building upgrade.

To learn more about the planned redevelopment, you are welcome to visit GTCDC’s exhibition, which runs until 31 May at:

  • Level 3 of KOMTAR (8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday except on public holidays)
  • Ground floor of Dewan Sri Pinang (8am to 5pm daily except on public holidays)
