Robbie Moore

Member of Parliament for Keighley



Robbie Moore took back the marginal seat of Keighley for the Conservatives in 2019, after the party lost the seat at the 2017 general election. Born to a family of farmers in Lincolnshire in 1984, he studied architecture at the University of Newcastle and rural surveying at the University College of Estate Management. His family set up a plastic recycling business in 2007. As a qualified rural chartered surveyor, he set up his own consultancy practice, Brockthorpe Consultancy, managing a team of six. He is a councillor on both Alnwick Town Council and Northumberland County Council and has expressed his desire to see a new local authority covering Shipley and Keighley and for the area to leave Bradford Council. He currently serves on the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs Committee. Moore is particularly interested in agricultural policy and investment in farming, backing the November 2020 Fisheries Bill. During the Covid-19 pandemic, he wrote to Prime Minister Boris Johnson requesting increased financial support for northern businesses that have had to remain closed due to lockdown restrictions, citing the severe economic impact that has “battered” the local economy.
