A 400-home housing development on BBC Cymru Wales' existing headquarters in Cardiff has taken another step forward.

Cardiff council has given developers reserved matters planning permission to redevelop two sites either side of Llantrisant Road in Llandaff.

House builder Taylor Wimpey will start on the 17-acre Llandaff Park scheme when BBC Wales moves to its new HQ at Cardiff's Central Square in 2019.
