Please can you elaborate on the facts of the matter and clarify your question. Thanks

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
We own the drive which forms part of our front garden- they only have access but treat the land as if it is their own. They pay no maintenance and the woman has taken to standing and looking in our windows. We want to place a gate at the boundary so they have access but respect our privacy
Expert:  propertylawyer replied 10 months ago.

Would the gate obstruct the neighbour's use of the access?

Expert:  propertylawyer replied 10 months ago.

Provided that you are not obstructing the access way and the gate will be on your land you can erect a gate.
