3              Interpretation

         (1)   In these Regulations:

Act means the Fuel Sales Grants Act 2000.

metropolitan area means an area that:

                (a)    has an ARIA score of zero; and

               (b)    is specified in the table in regulation 4.

non-metropolitan area means an area of land that does not include:

                (a)    a metropolitan area or a part of a metropolitan area; or

               (b)    a remote area or a part of a remote area.

remote area means an area of land that has an ARIA score that is greater than 5.8.

         (2)   In subregulation (1), a reference to the ARIA score for an area is a reference to the score for the area in accordance with the edition of Measuring Remoteness: Accessibility/Remoteness Index of Australia (ARIA) that was last published by the University of Adelaide before 1 July 2000.

Note 1   ARIA is a publication of the National Key Centre for Social Applications of Geographical Information Systems of the University of Adelaide. It is an Occasional Paper in New Series No. 6 published by that University.

Note 2   ARIA produces scores that vary from zero (high accessibility) to 12 (high remoteness).

         (3)   A location that abuts a road (or the road reserve) the centre line of which is the boundary between a metropolitan area and a non-metropolitan area is taken to be in the non-metropolitan area.

         (4)   A location that abuts a road (or the road reserve) the centre line of which is the boundary between a non-metropolitan area and a remote area is taken to be in the remote area.

4              Urban centres/localities

                For the purposes of the definition of metropolitan area in subregulation 3 (1), the following areas listed as urban centres/localities in the Statistical Geography: Volume 3 — Australian Standard Geographical Classification (ASGC) Urban Centres/Localities (published by the Australian Bureau of Statistics), as in force on 30 June 2000, are specified:

                An eligible location is a non-metropolitan area or a remote area.

6              Amounts of fuel sales grant (Act s 8)

         (1)   The amount of fuel sales grant in respect of the sale of fuel in a payment period in a non-metropolitan area is 1 cent for each litre of the fuel sold in the period.

         (2)   The amount of fuel sales grant in respect of the sale of fuel in a payment period in a remote area is 2 cents for each litre of the fuel sold in the period.

         (3)   If the fuel has been sold consistently in a remote area for an amount that is greater than $1.20 for a litre, the amount of fuel sales grant in respect of the sale is worked out by adding to the amount of fuel sales grant under subregulation (2) an amount determined in writing by the Commissioner, having regard to:

                (a)    the amount by which the amount for which the fuel was sold exceeds $1.20; and

               (b)    the remoteness of the location of the place where the fuel was sold; and
