Bolt the 4x2 to whatever is supporting the render, not the render

If you can get the 4x2 bolted to the face we can see most of, rather than the face the red line touches, then you won't narrow your opening by 2 desperately needed inches
Presumably the driveway abuts the garage and this is the only place for a gate. It ain't rocket science.
I wouldn't fix the batton to the wall until you have the gate so as you can double check the fit.
with a 2" baton on the wall, the opening will be just 14 - 15 inches - only skinny folk allowed?
