A hundred Syrian refugees are to be welcomed into Peterborough between now and 2020.
The city council has agreed to resettle five families a year for the next five years as part of a wider government pledge to accept 20,000 people forced from their homes.
The first groups - usually made up of two adults and two children - will arrive in Peterborough this autumn.
"The government has confirmed that we will receive appropriate levels of funding for these families. That means that we can be sure that we're offering them the help that they need and over the next few months we will be making appropriate arrangements to prepare for their arrival.
"This city has a long and proud history of welcoming those that need our help and we will be working with groups from across our community that have already offered their assistance."
The board of Hinchingbrooke Hospital in Huntingdon has agreed to go ahead with the potential merger with Peterborough City Hospital.
At a public meeting today, the board accepted a recommendation to work on a full business case for the merger.
The hospitals say working together will help to ease financial pressures, but it's been criticised by the local MP Jonathan Djanogly.
We feel that we want to have a local trust, with its own board that represents local people and we are very concerned that we will be swallowed up in the whole.
I think what we saw today was a clear questioning of the financial viability of the proposed new trust.
The case financially has not yet been made and that was recognised I think by the board.
