About Us

Housing Active is a website for those involved in the building, repair and maintenance of housing in the UK. Launched in 2006 as a print-only magazine the publication gained a reputation for its high quality editorial. Led by Editorial Director John Cowie and Editor Jackie Simpson, the magazine has recently been re-launched as an internet-only title. With the housing sector being a fast moving environment, it was important that Housing Active could react to the latest news, products, projects, political issues and constant drive towards sustainability.

Housing Active is produced by experienced business-to-business publisher Active Magazines who have brought to market other successful titles such as Windows Active, Conservatories Active and Water Active.
