Setter’s devious ways (7)


I believe the answer is:


'ways' is the definition.
(street is a kind of way)

'setter's devious' is the wordplay.
'devious' indicates an anagram.
'setters' with letters rearranged gives 'STREETS'.

(Other definitions for streets that I've seen before include "Avenues" , "Town thoroughfares" , "significantly ahead?" , "Ways" , "Built-up roads" .)

I've seen this clue in The Independent.
