Stepping stones

The National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) defines stepping stones as:

'Pockets of habitat that, while not necessarily connected, facilitate the movement of species across otherwise inhospitable landscapes.'

This is as opposed to wildlife corridors, which are:

'Areas of habitat connecting wildlife populations.'
