Launceston's historic NTCA Ground is set for a spruik up to return the cricket venue to its former glory.
Cricket Tasmania officials are keen to ensure the oldest first-class ground in Australia can host interstate matches for the first time since the Tigers played in January 2009.
"As a facility, it would now be great to move ahead and have some ability to have development at that ground," Davies said. "It still does look like it did 30 or 40 years ago."
The plan would be around improving the playing arena, practice wickets and also the repair of pre-existing stands.
The NTCA Ground last received significant funding almost two decades ago to upgrade its indoor training facility with new flooring, nets and lighting to keep the North on par with the redevelopment of Bellerive Oval.
"As a community facility, it is still really important for Launceston and Cricket Tasmania," Davies said.
"It has a part to play in that, but top-level cricket is not the sole driver of it."
Concerns over health and safety forced a WBBL fixture scheduled for November 13 to be held at Invermay Park.
That in turn forced Cricket Tasmania chairman Andrew Gaggin to endorse multiple annual Hurricanes' WBBL matches in Launceston to be shifted to Burnie's West Park.
"It will be interesting to see how the game at Invermay Park goes as it is a nice compact ground," Gaggin said.

UTAS Stadium had hosted back-to-back encounters last season and 12 months earlier four games over three days.
The former York Park will remain out of action because of ground resurfacing until a BBL return on December 30.
"Ideally, we would want that sort of game played at the NTCA when UTAS is not available for reasons you can't control," Gaggin said.
"It would be such a great venue for the women's game - it's close, it's compact.
"So it would be nice to bring it back to a standard where it provides us with an option. One when you need to play games of high level, we can go and play there with the pitch and surrounds.
"But with the facilities for the players, it has moved on a bit - it's fair to say at least the last 10 or 20 years to what players were once used to."
Cricket Australia had once been forced to switch an interstate match in 2002-03 from the NTCA Ground to Bellerive over unacceptable pitch conditions that did not meet minimum standards.
It is a far cry from the days of hosting a one-day international between India and New Zealand back in 1986.
Cricket Tasmania can dip into its coffers for the NTCA upgrades, but Gaggin added nothing can take place until levels of government come to an agreement first.
"It had to be a discussion for the council with the state government because I know they have put aside some funds into it and the NTCA has worked pretty hard to do that too," he said.
"It's a combination of all of those [organisations] to bring it up to a good standard."
