I know its hard but is there any way to stop this.

Re: 17 ft egress and ingress

If there is a recorded easement, the language may limit the scope of the easement. If there are not recorded terms, then the easement is valid for the scope of the original use. If the original easement was for farm ingress/egress then that is all that is allowed now. First get a copy of the original easement, then talk to the new neighbors and the city/county planning people to find out whether there has been a permitted expansion of the use. You may have to file suit to limit the use of the easement.
