Can I buy more land outside the building plot?

No, the peninsula is 15 acres in total. Most of it will be managed by the community that you can join. So if you want to use more land for other reasons, that can be possible, with the consent of the community. It is good to know that, due to ecosystem management issues, there is no space on this peninsula for larger animals like horses, sheep, goats, cows, or free range cats and dogs.
