A curfew in Merivale is one step closer after a meeting, organised by community members Marian Adams and Lana Wharakura, to address the suburb's issues was held Monday night.
The Bay of Plenty Times reported in a special report on Merivale last month that children as young as 10 roam the streets at night in that area.
A meeting will be held in coming weeks to put a final action plan into place.
