If they pull things down without consent that is not disrepair but waste.
The last clause is quite separate in application to the previous ones. It is not a provision as to repair.

A concrete or tarmac driveway, if not built correctly, will potentially reduce the value of the property. If problems developed with the drive, you would be liable for this cost at the end of your tenancy. As that liability for cost is shared with your guarantors, I could not approve such a construction without their written agreement.
An alternative would be a gravel drive. It would need to be excavated to 200mm, compacted with a vibrating plate, then filled with 150mm with plain gravel. After re-compacting you will have around 75mm to fill with whatever scalpings you decide to finish the drive with. Providing you adhere to this specification I would have no problem with you doing this work.
Subject to an approved drive being constructed, then I have no problems with the rear wall and fence being altered to allow access, providing suitable gates are obtained.
