Shelter’s Income and expenditure figures highlighted13:57 PM, 4th February 2019

I have a residential property on a private lane and my tenant is constantly complaining about the fly tipping and other undesirable activities.
Mine is the only residence on the lane – there are garages on the road and some commercial premises that back onto the lane, and these all have rights of access.
Putting a gate on the lane to prevent people driving down there and dumping stuff would be the obvious solution (we’ve tried CCTV cameras, lights etc) but can we force those with rights of access to contribute to the cost?
Or does the freeholder have to pay for it alone?
There is no management contract or service charge currently for the upkeep of the road.
Any advice appreciated
