Hi, thanks for your enquiry. Unless your neighbours Deeds grant them a right of access onto your land and a right to erect scaffolding, they certainly can't come onto your land, without consent. Some Deeds grant a neighbour to access their next door neighbour's land for the purpose of carrying out maintenance, but this right is normally restricted to a right of access and not a right to erect scaffolding. However, I note your neighbour does not even live next door to you and as such I would be amazed if their Deeds granted right of access on to your land, let alone a right to erect scaffolding. I you are not willing to grant consent, the neighbour has no right to enter and there is no legislation in place to change this- the Access to Neighbouring Land Act allows a party to go to Court to get permission to enter a neighbour's property if urgent repairs are required, but this Act does not cover scenarios where neighbours wish to carry out improvements to their property, which is the case here. I hope this assists and answers your question. If I have helped, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer. Kind Regards Al
