Plans to transform a disused Victorian toilet block in a Glasgow park into a health foods cafe have been approved.

But under new regulations introduced just this week objectors will be given a second chance to make their case to the local authority.

The proposal, for a 30-seater restaurant in the Victorian C-listed building specialising in organic and health foods in the city's Kelvingrove Park, had reignited the row over the city council's leasing of public land to commercial operators.

Despite objections from two surrounding community councils, the Friends of Kelvingrove Park and a local elected member, the scheme was given the go-ahead on the basis it was in keeping with several local authority policies.

Within the next 14 days, however, all those opposed to the scheme have another bite at the cherry before it is sent to Scottish ministers to consider, which the council is required to do as it will profit from the approval.

Hillhead Community Council, as well as their neighbours in Woodlands and Park, are expected to submit further objections, as will Nina Baker, of the city council's Green Party group.

Ms Baker said: "I can't say precisely on what grounds but I will be lodging further objections. This is an encouraging development but something we knew nothing about, despite a detailed planning briefing for new councillors."

Meanwhile, Stefan King's G1 Group was granted planning approval and listed building consent for its Gong Restaurant on Vinicombe Street, in Glasgow's west end.

It emerged ahead of yesterday's planning meeting that G1 had carried out works on the former Salon Cinema without prior approval. The city council had considered legal proceedings against the company but held back.

At yesterday's meeting it emerged that heritage group the Cinema Theatre Association had complained three times about the works.

But after a meeting with Mr King's adviser on the project, architectural consultant Neil Baxter, their concerns were allayed.

A city council spokesman said there was no indication that the authority would pursue further legal action but yesterday's approval made that unlikely.

Under the scheme G1 will restore much of the B-listed Edwardian cinema's original features and revert to the original name of The Salon.
