Admission to the Freedom of the City of London, James CARVER 15/02/1883

I may very well be going to the well once too often on the behalf of the same individual.  But as this enquiry is of a general nature and my ignorance on the matter is total, may I please pose this question....
I have a  copy of a 15th February 1883 document where a Common Council at the Guildhall in the City of London assents to the admission of James Edward CARVER of 10, St George's Rd, Tufnall Park, agent, to the Freedom of the City.
So, was there any special significance about this admission, or was it quite a common occurrence enabling people to work or trade within City guilds, for instance?
Many thanks in advance, Keith

Thanks very much for that link, Mckha489,
Which describes exactly what I wanted to know.  My suspicions weren't after all too far from the truth...
