Plans to build 15 apartments in Wetheral could be passed, despite objections from more than 80 residents.
Citadel Estates were granted planning permission un 2012 to build the homes on the site of Skelton House, a 200-year-old property that had been demolished.
Last year they modified the plans, increasing the size of the project by adding a forth floor, but objections from locals meant Carlisle City Council refused planning consent and issued a notice to halt the building work.
Citadel launched an appeal, proposing a third set of plans over three floors.
84 people have objected to these new proposals but the plans look set to be approved at a meeting on Friday.

Two men who carried out an armed robbery at a post office near Carlisle have each been sentenced to six years in prison. The robbery happened at Wetheral post office in June. A woman shop keeper working behind the counter, was threatened at knife point. Nearly £800 was stolen from the till.
Matthew Scott, 25, of Ellesmere Way, Carlisle, and Kye Halliburton, 21, of Harker Park Road, Carlisle, were caught on CCTV and admitted the offences at an earlier hearing.
The judge, Paul Batty QC said:
"I have no doubt the village of Wetheral and the whole of Cumbria was shocked when it heard of this crime. You targeted a vulnerable person to get money for drugs. She was absolutely terrified and traumatised by what you did. The effect on her has been devastating. This was an outrageous crime." The shop assistant was praised for her bravery and will be awarded £250 out of public funds."
