Simple way to restrict or block modifications and ADDITIONS

I´d like your suggestions on this.
We are using Tortoise/Subversion to manage our project's repositories (source code and documentation).
We have a change control procedure that needs to enforce documents blocking after reaching specific milestones during the project. That means that we shouldn't allow to modify or ADD documents that have not passed through an impact analysis procedure.
Tortoise blocking mechanism is fine for us, except that it allows to add files. I´d really like to have the functionality that will allow to restrict even the addition of files to a given directory.
I understand that we can use access level restriction, but it will require to have someone modifying the access settings frequently. According to our procedures, each time a requested change gets approved, a designated person should 'unblock' the file or directory in order to let the user apply the accepted change. From an operative point of view, to frequently modify the access settings file on the server (we use Apache) can be cumbersome.
I will appreciate your comments
