The scaffold will not be on the pavement. Can i get cover if anything
should happen to people walking by.

You are probably already covered if you have household insurance, but
ring your insurer to check, or read your policy documentation.

And put big warning notices up, and fluorescent barrier tape, and LED
warning lights at night. In other words, don't allow anyone to claim
negligence on your part. If you take all reasonable precautions you're OK.
