Kye Gbangbola and Nicole Lawler have won widespread community support in their eight-month campaign to establish the truth over their son Zane's death.
They presented a 15,000-signature petition calling for a public debate into the tragedy to borough council chief executive Roberto Tambini on Tuesday.
The couple were joined by dozens of supporters who marched on the council offices at Knowle Green in Staines, wearing T-shirts bearing a picture of seven-year-old Zane and carrying placards with slogans like 'A healthy little boy is dead, who will be next?' and 'Will anyone else have to die?'.

Hydrogen cyanide is a poisonous gas that is linked to landfill sites. Spelthorne Council has acknowledged the presence of a disused landfill site next to the family's home. But they are refusing to investigate a link between the landfill site and Zane's death.
On the day that would have been Zane's eighth birthday - Tuesday 21st October - we will march on Spelthorne Council to demand answers and to make sure that measures are put in place to avoid another tragedy of this kind.
Zane's mother said 'The 21st October marks Zane's birthday and we have waited 8 months for the Council to investigate the former landfill site next to Zane's home for contamination. As parents we are not able to share happy birthday celebrations with our precious son but we can give him a gift of Truth.
It's time for change so that agencies do their jobs properly and protect the public. It's time that Agencies are accountable. The National Medical Journal revealed 4 in 5 people live within 2 km of landfill and the UK floods we widespread. Without a comprehensive and complex investigation into landfill during floods there can be no guarantee that this will not happen to you next.'
We will meet at 1pm at Spelthorne Leisure Centre car park and march together to the council offices.
