The terms ‘metropolitan’ and ‘regional’ are not used to define the districts. The key measure used to set the districts is the number of motor vehicle accident injury claims made as a result of accidents caused by vehicles garaged in the district. This is known as claims frequency. The accidents do not always occur in the area in which the vehicle is garaged.
District 1’s areas have a higher number and cost of claims, whereas district 2 areas have a lower number and cost of claims. The districts are not based on any other characteristics of the area like block size or available services.

These areas were transferred to the appropriate district to help ensure CTP premiums are applied fairly across the community.
