AdminHistoryThrough-out the 19th and 20th Centuries, as the town of Bournemouth grew, the Cooper Dean Estate sold land for the purposes of development. The Estate would typically draw up an 'estate plan' and then lay out the roads which would make up the estate. These roads, which the estate would name, were then connected to the public utilities (sewers, water and electricity supplies etc). The Estate would then sell, usually by auction (see section D/CDN/B), freehold or leasehold building plots alongside the roads. . The Estate would also typically place a number of 'Restrictive Covenants' on the plots, restricting what could be built and what any properties could be used for etc. This meant that in practice the owners of plots and properties on ???Cooper Dean??? estates would have to seek the Estate's approval for any new buildings, change of use or for any alterations to exiting buildings. . Owners of plots or properties were required to submit copies of building/architectural plans to the Estate for approval prior to any building work. This approval would be in addition to any approvals needed or granted by the Borough authorities. The plans would typically includes elevations, sections, lay-outs and block/site plans, often on a single sheet.. The Estate would also charge a fee for the granting of approvals. Not all plans were approved and, even if approved, not all properties were subsequently built. . In addition the Estate would occasionally buy and sell additional properties/land within the Bournemouth area in order to consolidate the estate which, in turn, would have restrictive covenants place on them. . This section is made up from the plans submitted by plot/building owners to the Estate for approval. It is arranged alphabetically by street or property, with individual properties listed in street or plot number order. The date given, unless otherwise stated, is the date of approval of the plans by the Cooper Dean Estate..
