Mkhambathini Local Municipality is located along the south-eastern boundary of the uMgungundlovu District Municipality and adjoins the Richmond and Msunduzi municipalities to the west, uMshwathi to the north and the eThekwini Metropolitan Municipality to the east.

The municipal offices are located in the town of Camperdown. Mkhambathini has several comparative advantages emanating from its location near Durban and Pietermaritzburg and adjoining Cato Ridge, which is an industrial node. The N3 runs east-west through the central part of the municipal area and that stretch of the highway has been identified in the Spatial Growth and Development Strategy as a Provincial Corridor (uMgungundlovu District Municipality IDP 2012/13).

There are 14 964 households in Mkhambathini Local Municipality with an average of 4,2 persons per household. Almost 45% of households are headed by females. 49% of households reside in formal dwellings. 66% have access to piped water, either inside the dwelling, inside the yard, or water on a community stand. Nearly one-fifth of the Mkhambathini population has access to proper sanitation, with 18% of households having access to a flush toilet. Almost two-thirds of households use electricity for lighting.

The total unemployment rate is 27%, with Impendle having the highest rate at 45%. Approximately 45% of households are headed by females and at least 1% are headed by children.

A large proportion of the district is poverty stricken with little social and physical infrastructure and very little economic opportunity, except uMngeni and uMsunduzi(according to uMgungundlovu IDP 2012/13). This is reflected in the paradigm shift from being “water centric to being citizen centric”, in line with the vision to spread the vibrant economic benefits through integrated planning and service delivery, to all citizens in the district.
