Fancy living on Potters Close or Snape Drive?
It could have been an option for Harry Potter fans looking to move to Alnwick - if the town council hadn't put its foot down.
Developers constructing new housing estates must apply to their local councils with their suggestions for new addresses.
A freedom of information request has uncovered Northumberland County Council - rejected the JK Rowling inspired monikers after councillors failed to be taken under their spell.
Proposals for Taylor Wimpey's Willowburn Park development, being built near Taylor Drive to the south of the town, also included streets named after the likes of Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Dudley Dursley and Luna Lovegood, from the internationally beloved children's novel and film series.
While most names were turned down for being too similar to existing streets or not fitting with naming regulations.
But these fell foul of Alnwick's town councillors, who said names based on old-fashioned trades, like carpenter and butcher, would be more in keeping with the town.
The names might have brought a sprinkling of magic to a new development - although you'd have to feel sorry for anyone who ended up living on the distinctly un-magical 'Muggles Way'.
The streets Alnwick residents could have been walking down were:
Instead, the town council suggested:
Harry Potter has been big business in Alnwick ever since the town's famous castle was used as a filming location, and fans still visit the town today to enjoy Harry Potter tours or try out broomstick flying.
A spokesperson for Taylor Wimpey said: "When planning street names for developments we consider a wide range of local and historical influences and with nearby Alnwick Castle having been used as a filming location for two of the Harry Potter films, we were inspired to use familiar names at our Willowburn Park development.
"On this occasion members of Alnwick Town Council decided not to go ahead with our suggestions and we respect their decision."
A Northumberland County Council spokesperson added: "There’s no real magic involved. Once a developer puts suggestions forward, the county council checks them internally for any similar names or conflicts with existing street names in the area.
"Once this wizardry is done, we then consult with the local Town or Parish Council asking for their comments within 28 days. If they wish to object to any of the suggestions, they need to provide the reason why.
"With the Harry Potter streets in Alnwick, the developer suggested them and they were referred to the Town Council.
"However the developer was happy for the Town Council’s idea of using trades instead, which complement similar themed street names already in the town."
A spokesperson for Alnwick Town Council said the final decision lay with Northumberland County Council, but agreed councillors had been "not keen" on the wizarding theme.
