50, Love Lane saga may end soon

GEORGE TOWN: A glimmer of hope for closure to the dilemma surounding historical house 50, Love Lane is in the offing.
Penang Chinese Clan Council (PCCC) will soon meet state Land Office officials to work on transferring the property to the council for a symbolic RM1.
Council chairman Anthony Chang said the state Land Office replied on Aug 11 to PCCC’s letter and the meeting will be held soon.
He said the council appointed a legal firm to work on the process and the firm had written to the state.
The lawyers, he said, shared PCCC’s plans to turn 50, Love Lane into an interpretation centre of Chinese heritage if it were handed to the council.
“We will never use it for personal gain. We believe we are the ideal body to turn the pre-war shop house into a centre that would preserve Penang’s Chinese heritage.
The property, believed to be historically connected to a powerful Chinese society in the 1800s called Ghee Hin, is mired in trust problems as all the trustees died without transferring their duties to the younger generation.
