Chimney breast

Can someone tell me how far up the chimney breast you can remove without it being an issue to my neighbours chimney.

My chimney breast have been removed and I’ve now completed a flat roof in the loft area. The thing is I can’t get a seal around the chimney and I need to remove more of it. It look like its tide into the party wall but I’m not sure. Will I have to prop the chimney before moving the gallows brackets up? Or will it self support and then I can put the gallows on after?
