A new two-storey pavilion is one several improvements proposed for Hurstville Oval in a new master plan.
The plan proposes a new pavilion to be located on the eastern side of Hurstville Oval at the corner of Gordon and Dora Streets.
This would include a first floor viewing area with office and deck, change rooms, referees and umpires room, medical room including a doping control room, a canteen and storage.
Cricket NSW prefers the new location because it would allow a designated players and match officials area during elite matches, a report by council staff stated.
"An additional benefit of moving the new building to the proposed location is player safety and the separation of players from spectators to comply with Cricket Australia guidelines," the report said.
The Draft Hurstville Oval and Timothy Reserve Plan of Management and Master Plan are on public exhibition at Your Say Georges River.
Georges River Council mayor, Kevin Greene said the Master Plan outlines a broad direction for the future use and development of the open space.
"The Master Plan lists several proposed improvements including the redevelopment of the Players Pavilion into a café and sports museum, additional spectator seating and security fencing.
"The feasibility of a new community pavilion is being explored, which will cater to top grade sports events with features including change rooms, a referee's room, a first floor viewing area and public amenities.
"The document also includes proposed upgrades to the existing turf practice wickets to include synthetic run ups, which will increase carrying capacity and reduce wear and tear.
"The Plan of Management will enable us to identify a vision for Hurstville Oval and Timothy Reserve that is reflective of the entire community's needs and wants."
Cr Greene encouraged the community to share their ideas for the sites either online at Your Say Georges River, by mail, by email or in hard copy.
The proposed new pavilion will feature a medical room, canteen and storage, with two possible locations under consideration. Additional improvements listed in the Master Plan include: regrading of the earth between Hurstville Oval and Timothy Reserve and improved access to the open space.
