CALLS for a plan to deliver more investment in internet and digital media in Barnsley were due to be considered by councillors today.

The recommendations, due to be debated by members of Barnsley Council’s cabinet, follow a lengthy investigation by the authority’s economy and skills scrutiny commission.

Members of the scrutiny commission, who have heard from a variety of experts in the area, called for “stronger leadership” to spearhead investment in technology and a detailed, well-worked out future plan to develop the area’s digital economy.
