Building new wall

In front of my house there is an old wall, which is three feet high. On top
of the wall there is a iron gate may-be another three feet high. The reason I want to replace the wall, is because there is land behind it and it pushes the wall forward, so in a year or so it is going to break.
The Building and Safety is not clear if I can build the wall three feet high
again and put the iron gate on top. They allow only three feet high.
You see the dilemma? Where am I going to put the iron gate ?
Have you had similar cases where you argue with Building and Safety
and you win? Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.

I don't understand, a three foot gate on top of a three foot wall?
Can you post a pic?
