Plymouth, Moor View is a constituency represented in the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It elects one Member of Parliament (MP) by the first past the post system of election.

Following the review by the Boundary Commission for England into parliamentary representation in Devon, constituencies in Plymouth have been reorganised. This is one of two new seats, the other being Plymouth Sutton and Devonport.[2] The seat is largely the successor to the former Plymouth Devonport constituency.

Plymouth Moor View covers the northern part of Plymouth. The electoral wards which make up the constituency are Budshead, Eggbuckland, Ham, Honicknowle, Moor View, St Budeaux and Southway.[2]

The remaining wards from the City of Plymouth are in the constituencies of Plymouth Sutton and Devonport and South West Devon.
