NSW SEPP for Exempt Developments for steel Garden Sheds

Shedeye has attempted to simplify the legislation around exempt Garden shed developments, not sure if we have, by creating a hopefully easy to follow flow chart.

There is still some ambiguity in some of the legislations, for example what does low reflectivity mean?  Logic dictates that it means that you can not use zincalume in a residential setting (the classic tin shed), however what about the lightest of the colorbond (TM) colours, Classic Cream (TM)*, it has the highest reflectivity (the lowest solar absorption) with a Building Code of Australia (BCA) rating of very light.  If this is not allowed, a good quarter of Australian sheds would be in breach!
