Needy Victoria University students will lose 16 carparks at Kelburn tennis club off Salamanca Rd. 

A longstanding lease arrangement brokered by the university students' association was scrapped by Wellington City Council's Community, Sport and Recreation committee on Thursday. 

The council owns the tennis club and said commercial activity was banned under its town belt management plan. 

The parks were leased by disabled students, students with children and those who were unable to get public transport to university. 

Students will be able to use the parks until the university finds 16 alternative carparks on campus, or until November 30, whichever comes first.
