The parade involving three Ligoniel Lodges and two bands was initially planned to take place in north Belfast at 9am.
But on Wednesday, the parades watchdog banned the parade from passing the Ardoyne shop fronts.
The Ligoniel Combine then applied to walk the route of a protest parade in the afternoon, as part of demonstrations ongoing since the first restriction was imposed on 12 July.
The application for the morning march was put forward after the Order announced negotiations with residents, as part of what it calls the Twaddell Initiative, will only start after Orangemen complete their return parade past the Ardoyne shops.
The Order reacted to the ruling on Wednesday, stating: "The campaign will continue for the lodges to be allowed to go home".
Violence erupted after the local Twelfth parade was barred from returning past the flashpoint in July.
The Parades Commission said that it was disappointed the lodges had not commenced dialogue with involved parties.
It reaffirmed its call for "sincere and sustained" dialogue as the best route map to resolve parading issues at Ardoyne.
