TitleRecords of the Wapping Standing Neighbourhood Committee and of its sub-committees and panels
Date1986-1994
DescriptionMinutes and related committee papers.
Minutes were originally in files and later re-bound into volumes.

Unrestricted minutes and restricted minutes are filed in separate volumes and there were two agendas for this period:
o Section 1 - recording that part of the meeting which was open to the public
o Section 2 - recording that part of the meeting that was closed to the public, 'as publicity would be prejudicial to the public interest by reason of the confidential nature of the business to be
transacted and because of the need to receive/consider recommendations/advice from the appropriate officers of the council.'

Access to some series is restricted under data protection including 'exempt' or restricted minutes which cover sensitive matters often relating to named individuals.

More about exempt or Section 2 meetings:

The press and public were excluded from meetings dealing with 'exempt information' under schedule 12a of the Local Government Act 1972. Known as Section 2 meetings these often included decisions around named cases relating to individuals, families and/or staff.

Section 100 (a) of the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 reinforced this: 'the public and press be excluded from the meeting for consideration of Section 2 items on the grounds that they contain exempt or restricted information as defined in Part 1 Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972.’
