COASTLINE Housing has submitted a fresh application for 25 affordable homes on the edge of a Redruth village.
The original application for development of land at Tresavean, Lanner is currently going through the High Court after being challenged by the parish council, which does not believe there is a need for so many affordable homes in the village.
With both sides awaiting the High Court judge's decision, Coastline has been forced to submit a fresh application in order to avoid losing £3 million of Homes and Communities Agency Funding.
The deadline for the money, which is crucial to the viability of the scheme, is March 2013.
Cornwall Council's housing portfolio holder councillor Mark Kaczmarek said: "I don't want people in Lanner to think this is an application for a second set of houses at Tresavean.
"This is an identical application to the original one, except that the housing need has now grown from 53 to 104 on the Home Choice register."
Lanner Parish Council's challenge has delayed the construction of the new homes by a year.
Coastline Housing has so far incurred costs in excess of £250,000.
