by Modculture 15 December, 2008

It seems those Dartford renegades The Rolling Stones are now firmly accepted by the establishment, as news breaks that a number of new streets in Dartford are to be named after the bands’ songs.Dartford_renegades

Local councillors approved on Thursday the use of 13 Stones-related names for a new development called The Bridge. The theme was suggested by the developer, and two of the councillors came up with the actual names. Those street names in full are:

Little Red Walk
Satisfaction Street
Angie Mews
Babylon Close
Sympathy Street
Ruby Tuesday Drive
Stones Avenue
Dandelion Row
Lady Jane Walk
Cloud Close
Rainbow Close
Black Boulevard
Start Street

Police were fearful that fans might try to steal the street signs, but council leader Jeremy Kite said “I think there is more chance of people coming to have their photographs taken there. It is not just fun – it puts the place on the map and links to our heritage”.
