Hi, thanks for your question. My name isXXXXX can answer your question.
Thee is no right to access your land without your consent or a court order.
A court order can be obtained when it's necessary to enter your land and you will not consent, but the purpose of the access must be to repair something on their land, and it must be necessary.
Before the court will make that order, it needs to be satisfied that the neighbour will do the works without causing damage, or if damage is caused, that it will be put right at the expense of the person causing the damage.
Probably not, no. In reality, it will take about 4 months or so to get a court to even consider this, assuming she issued a claim tomorrow to get an order, it would be late August that she got an order I estimate. And if you mad an offer to allow her to do this but that it take place after seasonable plants in Autumn, then I expect a court would see your proposal as reasonable.
You're welcome. if you wish to read more about this, then have a look at this:

You're welcome. Are you happy with the service this evening?
Thanks - have a great week.
He cannot force you to provide access - only the court can do that. He would need to get a Judge to agree with him.
Any damage done to plants or otherwise would have to be put right if he wanted the court to provide him with access. Equally, you would be able to stpiulate that if you give access, you should insist on damage being repaired.
