Glastonbury will not become the second town in the UK to endorse the Plant Based Treaty.

At a meeting on Tuesday evening (October 11), councillors voted on the proposal to endorse the Treaty, and while seven councillors were in favour, eight voted against, although there was a general consensus on the importance of eating sustainably.

The vote followed a lengthy discussion, with councillors raising various concerns and issues, including the need to protect local farmers.

In the end, councillors voted to adopt a different motion, proposed by Councillor Michael White, that "this council supports those activities that bring humanity back into balance with planet Earth and other species."
