the station in our town is on private land and the private road starts about 100 yards from the pick up area. So are you saying that any Hackney from anywhere can pick up customers without a booking from there? What about Private Hire cars? As it is private land do they still need a booking or can they just rank up and take anyone?

The question is do non-station users use the rank or is it possible for those people to use the rank? If it's yes then it needs to be a locally licensed hackney. If no then it can be a non-local hackney as long as they have permission from the landowner.

If it's no then PH can rank up as it's not a public place, but they will still need to be pre-booked. That's the way 'taxi' services are supplied by the official Gatwick supplier.
So the Wolverhampton plated private hire cars sitting at the station must be pre booked, which is not the case, and our Council licensing team are sitting at desks that overlook this area and they won't even check the cars out when they park up at the station pick up point.

Forward them the Eastbourne judgement.
