LONDON, Dec. 13 (UPI) -- The streets of a new housing development in Dartford, England, are to be named after songs by the Rolling Stones, town council officials said.

Stones veterans Mick Jagger and Keith Richards are Dartford natives.

The Daily Telegraph newspaper said the Dartford Council is considering names like Satisfaction Street, Ruby Tuesday Drive, Stones Avenue and Angie Mews for a new 1,500-home estate built in the town.

"I think it's a great idea -- we definitely could do with a bit of satisfaction around here," local resident Julia Swan told the newspaper. "To live on Ruby Tuesday Drive would be fantastic, but God knows what the postman will think. He'll probably think it's a wind-up."

"It's a great idea. For once the council has come up with something which makes a bit of sense," neighbor John Warner added. "I reckon Mick and the band would be dead chuffed to have their songs on road names."

The Telegraph said police have warned the council that the signs for the roads could be stolen by enthusiastic fans.
