Plans for a £100m housing development which would see up to 750 homes built on the site of an old paper mill in Cardiff have been approved.

Up to 60% of homes on the 53-acre Mill development will be affordable housing.

Funding for the scheme - where Arjo Wiggins paper mill once stood - is coming from the Welsh government and Principality Building Society.

Economy Minister Edwina Hart said the plans would have a "considerable economic impact" on the region.
