The geographical area of the Gansbaai/Stanford administration (Wards 1, 2 & 11) covers more than 50% of the geographical area (±2 000 km2) of the Overstrand.  It stretches from just outside Voëlklip (Hermanus) to Quin Point on the Eastern Boundary of the Overstrand area and includes the residential areas of Stanford, Gansbaai, Baardskeerdersbos, Pearly Beach, Viljoenshof and Buffeljachtsbaai as well as the rural area that connects these areas.

The staff component allocated to this administration consists of 240 members and their main function is to manage and to maintain infrastructure needed to render the variety of municipal services required by the local residents.  The Stanford office is also responsible for rendering of the Post Office service on an agency basis.

The operational budget allocation for the area for the 2014/15 financial year amounts to just more than R100 million.

Apart from the rendering of basic services, the area administration is also involved in the execution of special projects such as the Working for the Coast (WFTC), Extended Public Works Programme (EPWP) as well as the Greenest Municipal Competition (GMC). The total number of job opportunities created in the process amounts to just less than 100 for the area under discussion.  The administration is also very much involved in all local economic development initiatives, promotion of tourism and plays a strong supportive role in supporting Provincial - and National Government in projects such as Social Services (payment of social allowances and Early Childhood Development Centres),Education (construction of schools), Human Settlements (housing projects), Police Services (local forums), etc.
