The Perth metropolitan region is grouped with the Peel region in some urban planning documents including the Western Australian Planning Commission's Directions 2031 and Beyond and the Perth and Peel@3.5million suite of documents. Together, the Perth and Peel regions stretch 150 kilometres (93 mi) from Two Rocks in the north to Bouvard in the south and are currently home to more than two million people.[6]
