Pink Devon Cottage

Behold Lantern Cottage in Kennford, Devon, a 17th Century thatched cob cottage. The owners painted it this lurid girlie pink and Teignbridge District Council has thrown a wobbler over the colour, because the cottage is a listed building (CLICK). The Conservative-run council has given the owners three years to repaint their cottage a more acceptable colour or shade of pink (the previous colour, according to the owners). Are councillors merely being sexist or do they have a point?
